CNA/NNOC Criticizes SEIU Trusteeship: Cites Concerns for Erosion of RN and Patient Care Standards
Date:1/28/2009

OAKLAND, Calif., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Citing concerns about erosion of RN and patient care standards, the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee today criticized the action by the Service Employees International Union to take over its largest California affiliate, United Healthcare Workers-West.

In a statement today, Rose Ann DeMoro, executive director of CNA/NNOC, which represents registered nurses in most of the hospitals where UHW represents ancillary staff, noted, "the appalling track record of SEIU International in signing substandard agreements with employers in exchange for additional dues payments is a major cause for alarm in a state that has set the national standard in hospital patient care conditions and RN standards."

DeMoro said CNA/NNOC will send an emphatic message to employers across California urging them not to exploit the SEIU-UHW battle to seek to unilaterally roll back conditions or contract standards for CNA/NNOC members, and to state legislators to be wary of SEIU-backed legislation that would harm patients or nurses.

  • Lobbied against reforms to improve patient care conditions and staffing in California nursing homes, and agreed to give management the "exclusive right" to set pay, discipline employees, reassign or eliminate jobs, and outsource work.
  • Agreed not to voluntary report adverse conditions to any regulatory or other oversight agency in a pact with Washington state nursing homes.
  • Opposed RN-to-patient ratios in California, and
