Adriana Barragan
Patient Financial Services
Collector II
Candidate for Executive Board
Kaiser Regional Operations South

My name is Adriana Barragan. I am a Medi-Cal Collector and have been a Kaiser Employee for 18 years and a union leader for the majority of that time. I am part of the Healthcare Justice Team and running for Executive Board.

This is the first time I run for E-Board. I have hesitated in the past, but our newly elected president and his threats to demolish the Affordable Healthcare Act gave me that push to move into action.

It’s now or never! As a member of the Healthcare Justice Team I will continue to fight for healthcare coverage, for all. We are all touched directly by this. We all have family members and/or friends that are now able to receive medical treatment and we want to keep it that way.

I had the privilege of participating in bargaining in 2015, thanks to your votes. Bargaining was a great experience. The newly elected president is a danger to our contract, too. I will fight for our right to bargain.

I know this will be a long and hard fight, but anyone who knows me can tell you, I don’t give up! I will always work for you, my fellow brothers and sisters.
