Major Labor Board Ruling Begins to Clear the Way for Union Elections at 51 California Healthcare Facilities
Date:3/2/2010

hortly afterward they formed an organization called the National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW) and filed the decertification petitions with the NLRB.  

Now, instead of heeding the NLRB ruling and agreeing to either withdraw their petitions for elections or allow the votes to take place, the former officials have switched tactics and are trying to block the votes on a facility-by-facility basis. NUHW officials have already filed individual blocking charges at six facilities (see list below), and are scrambling to seek blocking charges at every facility in which they know they cannot win an election.

"After a year of holding rallies and demonstrations insisting that the NLRB schedule elections, NUHW officials reversed course and are trying to block the very same elections because they realize workers don't support them and they would lose," said Vicki Wren, who works in Radiology at St. Louise Regional Hospital in Gilroy. "They are showing their hypocrisy, their lack of concern for our well-being, and their lack of respect for our rights as workers."

Union members say NUHW officials are trying to use the election petitions to divide workers, and that employers are taking advantage by running anti-union campaigns or pushing for concessionary contracts in negotiations.
