We have great news. Today after SEIU-UHW organizers realized that the vast majority of us have rejected them and are ready to regain our voice in our workplace by joining NUHW, SEIU pulled out of our election at Mission Neighborhood Health Center.

Tomorrow, Kaiser workers will begin to vote on SEIU’s disastrous deal with its “partner,” Kaiser Permanente.

650 caregivers at Seton Medical Center in Daly City who petitioned for an election to leave SEIU and to join NUHW secured an election date for March 21 over SEIU’s objections.
“After SEIU’s failed representation and contract takeaways, we are ready to win with NUHW,” said Suad Husary, a Respiratory Therapist at the Medical Center. “We saw how NUHW workers at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital fought off layoffs and won a contract with raises and no concessions. We’re united to do the same at Seton.”
As the collective bargaining agent for Seton employees, SEIU has agreed to major contract concessions, including increases in the cost of workers’ health benefits and a weakening of job security provisions that has resulted in the layoffs of more than 100 Seton caregivers. In the Daughters of Charity Health System as a whole, SEIU’s giveaways have resulted in job losses for more than 300 employees.
SEIU’s concessions at Seton mirror its conciliatory bargaining approach to employers throughout the state.
