Columnist Examines Prime’s Motivations in Labor Dispute
Los Angeles Times columnist Michael Hiltzik suggests that an ongoing labor dispute between Ontario, Calif.-based Prime Healthcare and the Service Employees International Union might stem from Prime's "gnarly history" with the SEIU. Hiltzik writes that Prime "blames the union for fomenting" a federal probe into its Medicare billing practices.
