SEIU Healthcare Workers to Appeal During Super Bowl for Free and Fair Union Elections in Boston Hospitals
Date:2/2/2008

Ads to Air on WBCN (CBS) Patriots Radio Network

BOSTON, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- While the Patriots take on the New York Giants in the Super Bowl, Massachusetts healthcare workers will take on the hospital CEOs trying to prevent them from voting freely in fair secret ballot elections to form unions. During Sunday's game, Boston hospital workers will take to the airwaves in their efforts to unite for a voice in protecting patient care and improving jobs for working families.

As a Super Bowl and New England Patriots sponsor on CBS radio affiliate WBCN, the healthcare workers of 1199SEIU will raise awareness during 10- and 30-second spots that free and fair union elections for hospital staff mean better care and good jobs for the whole community.

Hospital management has sometimes waged expensive campaigns of fear and intimidation against Boston caregivers who have tried to form unions in the past.

"Everybody's talking about the presidential campaign, but what if your boss told you how to vote and who to vote for?" the ad asks. "What if your boss could fire you if you didn't vote their way?"

The healthcare workers of 1199SEIU also will be the exclusive sponsor of injury reports and injury updates throughout the broadcast.

"This is a chance for us to tell our story," says Jason Depina, a lab technician at a Boston hospital and a Pats fan. "As people listen in to learn about the health of their favorite Patriot players, we get the chance to ask them to support the people who take care of their health and who deserve a fair shot to form a union."

ABOUT FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS: Studies show that given a chance the vast majority of Americans would join a union. So why aren't more workers unionizing? The answer is that when working people attempt to form unions, management too frequently reacts with campaigns of intimidation, misinformation and fear. Fundamentally, a free and fair election means that employees are free to decide whether they want to unionize in a fair secret ballot vote. Management, rather than interfering, respects this decision.

1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, is the largest healthcare workers union on the east coast, representing more than more than 300,000 service, professional, technical, clerical workers, pharmacists, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, nurses' aides and home health aides employed in pharmacies, hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, home care and social service agencies.
