An NUHW Rank-and-File Hero Retires

April 13th, 2012

Marilyn Benson worked as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital for 37 years. She was elected Chief Shop Steward, and served as an elected member of the Executive Board with Local 250 and UHW. As a rank-and-file leader, Marilyn experienced the turmoil of two separate trusteeships, and became a founding member of NUHW. Marilyn helped lead the SVMH bargaining team during her years of service, and with her help, SVMH workers won one of the best hospital contracts in the country.

Thank you Marilyn!
