Armed With Signatures, SEIU to Propose Salary Cap for El Camino Hospital Execs

Share on Facebook
In less than one month, the Service Employees International Union-United Healthcare Workers West gathered more than 15,300 signatures from residents in the Mountain View, Calif.-based El Camino Hospital district to propose a ballot measure limiting hospital executives' salaries, surpassing its goal of 14,000, according to a Los Altos Town Crier report.

The SEIU will now submit the signatures to Santa Clara County for verification, according to the report.

If approved, voters in the district can decide on this November's ballot if compensation for all executives, managers and administrators at El Camino Hospital should be capped at no more than double the salary of California's governor, which was $173,987 in 2011, according to the report.

El Camino Hospital CEO Tomi Ryba, who was hired last August, currently has a base salary of $695,000.
