New Health Workers Union Loses Petition for Elections
On Tuesday, the National Labor Relations Board dismissed the newly formed National Union of Healthcare Workers' West petition for new elections at Catholic Healthcare Workers West because a contract is in place. NUHW was formed after the Service Employees International Union took control of its California local United Healthcare Workers West. NUHW plans to appeal the ruling.
