As CNA Escalates Union-Busting Raids on SEIU Members...

LOS ANGELES, April 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the California Nurses Association escalates shameful and recently violent efforts to raid nurse members from SEIU (http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2008/04/battle-of-the-n.html), SEIU local union United Healthcare Workers-West (UHW-W) still refuses to join other SEIU local unions in taking action to stop the CNA's union-busting tactics.

UHW-W's refusal to participate in our efforts to stop CNA union-busting undermines the efforts of SEIU healthcare workers to build a stronger union."

UHW-W continues to refuse to take concrete actions in solidarity with other SEIU local unions against CNA's union-busting:

UHW-W was the only SEIU local union to refuse to put their money where their mouth is and continues to make payments to the CLCs.

-- UHW-W is refusing to contribute organizers and money to the united effort of other SEIU healthcare local unions to reach out to CNA members and ask them to tell their leadership to stop raiding SEIU and other unions.
