SEIU Decision to Force Transfer of Long-Term Care Members Out of United Healthcare Workers Delayed
Date:1/8/2009

Board Decision May Be Revealed Friday, January 9

WASHINGTON, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) President Andy Stern convened a conference call of the SEIU International Executive Board to discuss the forced transfer of 65,000 nursing home and homecare members out of SEIU United Healthcare Workers-West (UHW), its third largest affiliate, but delayed the final decision until tomorrow.

According to reports, several executive board members planned to raise concerns about both the issue and the process, particularly since the board was asked to make this decision via conference call rather than waiting for its regularly scheduled meeting on January 20-21, 2009.

Despite these concerns, Stern went forward with holding the vote, but decided to do it electronically rather than by voice vote. Executive Board members are required to cast their vote by 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time tomorrow.

Mary Mundy, a certified nursing assistant at La Mariposa Nursing Center in Fairfield and one 125,000 UHW members who protested Andy Stern's move to dismantle UHW with letters and petitions, said, "Fair minded people should recognize that healthcare workers should be able to determine our own future in our own union, rather than allow a power grab like this to proceed. We hope the International Executive Board does the right thing and respects the voices of California's caregivers by allowing us to stay united in UHW."

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
