Northern California Kaiser Workers Consider New Union
Northern California mental health workers at Kaiser Permanente facilities have petitioned to hold a union election that would allow them to change their representation from the Service Employees International Union-United Health Care Workers to the National Union of Healthcare Workers. Southern California Kaiser Permanente employees already switched to NUHW. Kaiser and SEIU-UHW have said workers cannot vote to switch union representation until June 2011; however, NUHW says the workers have a 30-day window beginning June 3 in which to change unions.
