Massive rally of caregivers at State House will focus on healthcare payment reform

BOSTON – Hundreds of healthcare workers and their supporters will rally at the Massachusetts State House on Wednesday, May 11, at 3 p.m. in an effort to shape upcoming payment reform legislation and to raise awareness of the vital role healthcare service workers play in the delivery of quality care.

As lawmakers prepare for hearings next week on what is being called “phase two” of Massachusetts healthcare reform, members of the state’s largest healthcare union will be mobilizing in massive numbers to lobby legislators on the bill. Those lobbying efforts will be followed by a huge 3 p.m. rally at the Grand Staircase of the State House.
