Statement by UHW Trustee Eliseo Medina on the Trusteeship of Local UHW-W
Date:1/28/2009

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On January 27 the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) imposed a trusteeship on United Healthcare Workers-West (UHW or UHW-W) for three separate reasons:

1. Serious financial wrongdoing and attempts to undermine democracy, as found by former U.S. Secretary of Labor Ray Marshall in his trusteeship report;

2. Refusal to cooperate with the Union's democratic decision on the jurisdiction of long-term care workers in California; that is, its decision to unify these workers from 3 separate locals into one strong new local union; and

3. Putting collective bargaining relationships at serious risk by fostering or failing to counteract efforts to decertify bargaining units and deauthorize dues deductions, among other matters.

The following are remarks as prepared for UHW Trustee Eliseo Medina, who spoke on a telephone press briefing today:

"As you know, former Labor Secretary Ray Marshall found that Sal Rosselli and the officers of UHW engaged in financial malpractice, undermined democratic practices, and misappropriated a SEIU convention delegate database. These findings by themselves merited a local being placed in a trusteeship.

"However, despite the findings, Secretary Marshall recommended -- and the SEIU International Executive Board concurred -- that UHW-W officers should be given an opportunity to change course and agree to comply and fully cooperate with the implementation of the International Executive Board's long term care jurisdiction decision and agree not to use members' dues money to interfere with, or undermine, the implementation of that decision. This decision afforded UHW leaders an opportunity to resolve this dispute.

"Unfortunately, UHW leaders
