UHW Members Call on SEIU to Schedule Disaffiliation Vote
Date:1/9/2009

"Widespread and Profound Opposition" Cited

OAKLAND, Calif., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In response to letters, petitions and other requests from members employed at healthcare facilities and worksites across California, the Executive Board of SEIU United Healthcare Workers-West (UHW), consistent with provisions contained in the Service Employees International Union International Constitution, has sent a letter today to SEIU President Andy Stern requesting that he schedule a vote of the local union's 150,000 members to formally disaffiliate from the Washington, D.C.-based SEIU.

  • The forced removal of 65,000 long-term care members from UHW;
  • The stifling of union members' free speech rights;
  • Widespread corruption by Stern-appointed union leaders.

In making its request, and consistent with the SEIU Constitution, the UHW Executive Board is not taking a position in support of disaffiliation.

In its letter to Stern, the UHW executive board acknowledges its obligations regarding disaffiliation under the SEIU Constitution, and adds that, "Nonetheless, we consider ourselves required by our duties to our members and to the SEIU to report to you that we believe there is widespread and profound opposition within our membership to any efforts to dismember our local union or to take away its rights of democratic governance..."
