Mark A Matthews RT
Representative Chair February 4, 2017
Running for Executive Board
Kaiser Division Baldwin Park
I welcome the opportunity to be a leader in the Executive Board Team:
I’ve had the pleasure of working at Kaiser Permanente for over 18 years as a Surgical technician in Labor and Delivery. I’m committed to unifying, listening and problem solving issues of the employees. I aim to empower others to stand up for our rights on the job. I strive to work in solidarity and to be accountable. My experience has been as a Chief steward and Mobilization Chair. I’ve served 2 years in the Executive Board for SEIU-UHW. I’ve also served 1 year in the financial budget team. By which I am able to explain to the members how our dues are allocated and the goals of our union. Most importantly I want to continue to fight to keep our benefits and provide job security. I will continue to grow by getting the tools and training for bargaining our contract. It has been a rewarding experience and I hope to continue.
Thank you for your support
