Stanford Accelerates Union-Busting Tactics

Caregivers fight back by petitioning NLRB for election to win representation of powerful statewide healthcare union

STANFORD, Calif., July 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Continuing its long-standing anti-union campaign, Stanford's latest step was to withdraw union recognition. Undeterred in their decade-long fight to win quality hospital standards, fair wages and good benefits, caregivers will petition the National Labor Relations Board for a union election. UHW already represents most of the hospitals in the area and has cultivated its reputation of improving patient care and raising worker wages.

Assemblyman Ira Ruskin, D-Redwood City

Menlo Park Mayor Andrew Cohen

hospital workers, community allies
