Ballot Measures Filed To Prompt Debate Over Hospital Costs, Salaries
California Healthline

A health care workers’ union in California has filed two ballot initiatives in an effort to engage the state’s hospital industry in a public debate over rising costs and high executive salaries, according to union officials, the Sacramento Bee’s “Capitol Alert” reports. The move comes after similar ballot initiatives introduced by the Service Employees International Union-United Healthcare Workers West last year were dropped when the union and the hospital industry reached an agreement on such issues.
