Dolores Huerta rallies with homecare workers fighting for independence from SEIU

United Farm Workers co-founder supports vote for National Union of Healthcare Workers in next week’s union election

Fresno, Calif.—Central Valley labor legend Dolores Huerta took the stage today at a rally in downtown Fresno to support thousands of workers in a fight for independence from the Service Employees International Union.

Next week, 10,000 Fresno County homecare providers will vote in what journalists have called “the most important union election in the country.” Thousands of them asked the County to schedule the election so they can join the National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW) and quit the Washington, D.C.-based SEIU, a union stained by corruption scandals that has failed to protect their wages against devastating cuts by the County and State.
