Philadelphia’s public radio station recently published an article on a unionization movement among SPs working at the local Thomas Jefferson University system. The author interviewed union organizers and addresses their concerns in light of SP pay at other area organizations, the work the SPs do, Jefferson Health’s finances, and union advocacy in other fields. Published by a general news organization, the article brings wider attention to debates within the field over SP work and proper remuneration.
