Loma Linda Residents Vote to Unionize, but Still Face Pushback

Residents and fellows at Loma Linda University Health in California succeeded in their National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) vote, the latest in a flood of similar unionization activity at institutions across the country.

However, Loma Linda has continued to push back against these efforts, even following the residents and fellows’ vote, the results of which were recorded at the end of June. Residents and fellows at Loma Linda voted in favor of unionization through the Union of American Physicians and Dentists (UAPD), according to the NLRB, with 361 votes in favor of unionization and 144 votes against.
