San Francisco Home Care Workers Demand that Former Union Officials Come Clean
Date:9/15/2009

Caregivers say it's time for Sal Rosselli and others to admit they came up far short in a bid to woo SEIU-UHW members

"Now it's time for them to admit they are unwanted, that they didn't come close to getting the signatures they needed, and leave us alone so we can work through our union to protect our wages and healthcare benefits."

The former officials, who in January were removed from office in SEIU-UHW for, among other things, trying to transfer $3 million off the union's books, wanted some 22,000 San Francisco home care workers to switch to a new organization they are calling the National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW).
