Labor Relations Summit
A special event for hospital labor relations executives

October 4, 2012
10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.


California Hospital Association is planning an invitation-only event for hospital labor executives. Program attendees will learn up–to-the-minute information on federal and state labor issues and participate in special forum to identify future labor topics impacting health care employers. 

Summit opens with a review of the recent CHA/SEIU agreement and the status of California’s health care reform efforts. Additional sessions will outline what’s on the horizon for labor activity at state and national levels and how health care reform will impact labor relations. An interactive roundtable discussion will focus on long-term labor issues including workforce, scope of practice and more.

Register now to participate in this invitation-only event.

(Please note, that while day-to-day labor matters and collective bargaining agreement administration are also important aspects of labor relations, these topics will not be covered at this summit.)
