Boycott Prevails in Sham SEIU Vote; Lawmakers and Advocates Join Healthcare Workers in Opposing Forced Union Merger
Date:12/11/2008

elected by healthcare workers in California. Healthcare advocates say this loss of accountability could put patients and seniors at risk.

"National SEIU officials have pursued a strategy of backroom deals with nursing home operators that limit the ability of caregivers to speak out about dangerous conditions," said Pat McGinnis, director of California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform. "Local union members in UHW have resisted that strategy and pushed for contracts that give caregivers a voice to advocate for their residents. Losing that voice would be very harmful."

California lawmakers are concerned SEIU officials could move forward with the merger over the objections of workers. Elected leaders held press conferences in three regions yesterday to announce their opposition to the forced merger.

"This process denied healthcare workers a fair choice to secure the representation that would best meet their needs and those of the people they serve," said Sacramento County Supervisor Roger Dickinson. "SEIU's hostile takeover of the United Healthcare Workers would impede caregivers' efforts to advocate for hospital patients, nursing home residents and homecare consumers. That's why more than 240 elected officials and community leaders have called for a peaceful resolution to this dispute and urged that it be settled through mediation and not by force."

With more than 150,000 members, SEIU United Healthcare Workers-West is the fastest-growing healthcare union in the United States. We represent healthcare workers in all job classifications and all healthcare settings, including hospitals, homecare, nursing homes and clinics. Our mission is to achieve high-quality healthcare for all.
