    Union Relationships

    Sutter Health's physician organizations, hospitals, home health and other service providers have nearly 60 locally negotiated collective bargaining agreements with 17 different labor unions.

    Sutter Health’s Position on Organized Labor

    Sutter Health respects the right of employees to decide for themselves whether or not they want to be represented by a labor organization and, if so, which one. We believe that all employees should be able to make fully informed decisions and exercise freedom of choice through the secret ballot and democratic process established by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

    Where relationships with labor organizations are in place, Sutter Health-affiliated hospitals bargain locally and in good faith with the goal of providing their employees with economic security and a rewarding work environment while focusing on improving the value of our services to consumers – the same goals they strive to achieve for employees not represented by a union.
