Doctors and Advance Practice Clinicans Employed at Unity Health Care Clinics File to Unionize

Washington D.C. — The Union of American Physicians and Dentists filed on behalf of more than 100 physicians, dentists, and advance practice clinicians empoyed across more than 20 Unity Health Care clinic locations in Washington D.C. on August 31, 2023.

A provider stated that the forming of a union will give them and their colleagues a stronger collective voice to advocate for patients and improve the quality of patient care delivered in the community.

The petition filed with the National Labor Relations Board Region 05 Office enables the providers to hold a union election in the upcoming weeks. If successful, the providers will join a growing number of healthcare workers who have formed unions to improve their working conditions and ensure the highest quality of care for patients.
