California SEIU Members Support Single Union Uniting Long-Term Care Workers
Date:12/12/2008

Washington, and California. Among the new locals created by the reorganizations was United Healthcare Workers-West (UHW), whose leaders actively supported the dissolution of Locals 399 and 250 in 2005 to create UHW.

"Our members understand that in an age concentrating wealth and globalizing corporate ownership, we have to organize ourselves on a scale to compete and win. That means declaring the era of old local bossism is over," Stern said.

The current process of determining long-term care jurisdiction in California began in 2006 when healthcare workers were reorganized in a manner leaving long-term care workers divided among three locals, United Healthcare Workers-West (UHW), Local 521, and United Long-Term Care Workers Local 6434. At that time, the IEB recommended that SEIU examine the question of whether fragmentation was working to the detriment of homecare workers. That reevaluation was the focus of hearings held in May and July 2008 and overseen by outside hearing officer Leonard Page.

After receiving testimony from each of the locals and from the Long-Term Care Division of SEIU Healthcare, Page recommended the creation of a new long- term care local union by combining long-term care members from Local 521, Local 6434 and UHW. The SEIU Executive Committee recommended that the IEB conduct an advisory membership vote to measure member support for the option suggested by the hearing officer and for an additional option, advanced by UHW during the hearings, of a new statewide healthcare local union.

In the first week of January 2009, the IEB will proceed to finalize its decision in the California jurisdiction matter. Should the IEB determine to charter a new local union, a personal representative will be assigned for a term of 30 days following the finalization of the IEB's decision, with the responsibility to draw up a plan and schedule for the implementation of the jurisdiction
