UHW to Nursing Home Chain: Stop Undermining Workers
Date:3/7/2008

Kindred Healthcare Trying to Weaken Caregivers, Oppose Quality Improvements

SAN FRANCISCO, March 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nursing home workers will hold a press conference outside of the headquarters of Kindred Healthcare on Monday to denounce the nursing home chain's attempts to weaken its employees and their union, SEIU United Healthcare Workers-West, before bargaining for a new contract is scheduled to begin.

Within the next month, caregivers at 15 Kindred homes represented by SEIU expect to open negotiations for a contract that includes fair wages, quality benefits, and a voice on the job to improve resident care. Kindred, for its part, has long opposed the workers' efforts to win safe staffing and other compliance issues at their nursing homes.

In fact, management at Kindred has attempted to subvert the workers' right to be in the union of their choice by denying workers the right to vote on the job, and stating that they would prefer to deal directly with SEIU international leaders rather than California-based workers. Kindred management also rallied other nursing home operators to prevent UHW members from participating in an internal union vote at their facilities -- a practice never before challenged.

UHW members will be joined by elected leaders and community activists who support their fight for fairness and justice for working families.
