Jordan Health workers took to the streets on Saturday outside the center's corporate headquarters on Lake Avenue where the board of directors were set to meet.
It's the latest move in an ongoing dispute between the Jordan Health Center and its union employees.
Employees have objected a plan they say will cut 10 billing specialist jobs and be outsourced to California. The two sides have been locked in a contract dispute for more than a year.
"We're united, we're sticking together, and we're letting Jordan Health Center know that we're always going to stick together," said Maryann Toney, 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers.
Jordan Health President & CEO Janice Harbin later responded to picketers at a news conference.
"The employees that work with us know we have 10 centers in two counties and the seven day a week urgent care. We are a family and they know we are a family," said Harbin. "I think that the message is that we are making prudent business decisions to make sure that we remain a viable safety net in this community for many years to come."
Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren and Congressman Joe Morelle recently co-signed a letter to Jordan Health asking them to reverse the decision to outsource jobs. The center's management said last month this was a decision based on the bottom line.
