SEIU Members Renew Call for CNA, Labor Leaders to Address Deplorable Tactics Harming Nurses and Patient Care
Date:4/15/2008

y own goal, was to march peacefully into the board room and support our CHP sisters as they spoke and handed out literature about their stolen right to vote for their union. However, the CNA's supporters in the room ran out to confront us and used physical force to prevent our group from entering the ballroom and voicing our dissent. After only a few feet I found myself dodging out of the way of getting tackled. They started to attack us. I ran past about three men who tried to stop me by tackling me. I was about 10 feet away from the ballroom room door at the point that I was slammed into the ground. ..." -- Rachael Holland, SEIU/1199 organizer, Ohio at http://www.openleft.com/showComment.do?commentId=58274

-- "Here's what happened: We stood outside and protested peacefully. Then the doors came open and we went inside. We didn't go into the banquet room, only the hallways. We had friendly conversations with people in the hallways and we chanted: 'Shame on CNA.' The only violent part was Labor Notes pushing us out of the building. It was a peaceful, loud demonstration. We wanted to make our voices heard. I can't believe that CNA is claiming that we were violent, after what they did to the CHP workers." -- Eugene Jordan, Sr, hospital employee, SEIU member, Cleveland, Ohio

CHP nurses and other hospital employees have been engaging in a broad effort nationally to express their disapproval of the CNA tactics in Ohio. After a three-year campaign by CHP workers to win a fair process to freely choose whether to form a union with SEIU, CNA organizers waged a vicious "vote no" campaign that resulted in the cancellation of union elections in March.

The CNA has continued its tradition of raiding other unions rather than uniting currently unorganized nurses. Recent examples include:
