Healthcare Workers Answer SEIU Ultimatum
Date:1/26/2009

"All we want is the fundamental rights that all union members should have," said Ruby Guzman, a certified nursing assistant and union steward at Creekside Healthcare Center in San Pablo. "The right to vote on what union we will belong to, and the right to elect leaders who represent us. If national SEIU leaders will agree to protect those rights, we are ready to reconcile our differences and move forward for the greater good of the labor movement and our vision of a more just and democratic society."

UHW's proposal was discussed and voted on over the weekend by more than 5,000 elected union stewards representing the local union's 150,000 members. It was approved this morning by UHW's elected executive board.

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. www.seiu-uhw.org
