A rally and march are scheduled Saturday in Oakland to urge UPMC, Western Pennsylvania's largest employer, to improve treatment of its employees, Pittsburgh City Councilwoman Natalia Rudiak said.

City Council passed a proclamation, sponsored by Rudiak, supporting the rally, her office said.

UPMC says its compensation exceeds what other industries offer, and offers benefits that other major corporations and governments are reducing or eliminating.

The rally and march begin at 11 a.m. at the corner of Bigelow Boulevard and Forbes Avenue in Oakland. SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania, which accuses UPMC of intimidating and retaliating against workers trying to organize, is hosting the rally.

The union filed at least two complaints with the National Labor Relations Board against the health care giant; UPMC settled one in February by rehiring two workers it had fired.
