Orlando Health Randomly Removing Posts
Orlando Health is now randomly removing posts from their Facebook page. They have warned people they will be removing any posts that have to do with diversity or domestic partner benefits if the posters do not move those comments to the back page discussion board they've opened up for - JUST domestic partner benefits.
Again, Orlando Health is setting themselves up for legal trouble. They are indiscriminately censoring certain people and not others - IN AN OPEN FORUM.
Don't mistake Orlando Health's lies for the truth - Orlando Health created the Facebook page and prompted people to post nice things on it to counter act the abundance of critical information that has amassed on the internet to the contrary. Further, Orlando Health's number one fear is their employees getting the idea that they have power in the work place.
BUT - people are starting to wake up. I received a communication from an Orlando Health employee recently stating the following,
"I am a team member, if u do not use my name I will help you. How about addressing the illegal act of requiring exempt team members to take mandatory time off during the holidays without paying them when the law requires a set salary???"
Orlando Health team members - does the 'leadership' actually change anything from your suggestions on the team member surveys?
Orlando Health patients - how do you feel knowing Orlando Health has five levels of VIP patient status and if you are just a regular patient you are not getting the same attention as other more powerful people or connected people?
YOU CAN ALL ORGANIZE AND GET WHAT YOU DESERVE AT ORLANDO HEALTH. UNIONS ARE NOT ALL BAD - AND IF THE COMPANY IS GOING TO BREAK THE LAW OR TREAT CERTAIN PEOPLE AS LESS THAN EQUAL TO OTHERS - SOMEONE NEEDS TO STAND UP AND SAY ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. YOU ARE THAT SOMEONE.
If you want to confidentially share inequalities you notice in the Orlando Health workplace, as several people have started to do - email or call me. My info is below. We'll work together in confidence to set the next wave of this plan in motion - actually, without sharing details here - that is already happening. You can join in and will be protected.
Don't let people who make more than they should for their level of job tell you what to do. Be your own person.
