California Nurses Association Looks To End Affiliation With National Union of Healthcare Workers
The California Nurses Association, which represents 86,000 registered nurses in the state, is seeking to end its affiliation with the National Union of Healthcare Workers, which represents 10,600 health care service workers and technicians. CNA has asked the courts to arbitrate its disputes with NUHW in an effort to end "a hopelessly dysfunctional relationship." NUHW leader Sal Rosselli said the group "regret[s] the decision by a few CNA officials to attempt to end an affiliation that is so beneficial [to] members of both unions."
