Some of you may have noticed that you can earn points for “engaging with the content“ on OHSU Now — sharing articles to social media, posting comments that are liked by other employees, etc. (To share an article, just click the little share arrow at the bottom right of the post.) The three employees who earn the most points each month win a prize from OHSU.
Our members may wish to share the current OHSU Now post recognizing Lawrence Furnstahl as a “CFO to know.” We agree that OHSU’s chief financial officer is someone you should know — he is responsible for OHSU’s financial and operational management.
If you choose to share this post, you may want to let folks know that, based on management’s contract proposals, OHSU’s CFO and finance executives seem to:
- Want workers to risk patient safety and employee health by coming to work sick (PTO proposal).
- Want you and your family to pay more for your health care in a time of record profits (multiple health-insurance take-backs).
- Be willing to risk patient safety by keeping the hospital understaffed (rejected Local 328’s proposed staffing task force).
