Count the votes! Tarzana workers march on SEIU to free the ballots and win their union

November 16th, 2009

On Thursday, Providence Tarzana environmental services workers marched on the SEIU/SWU office in Los Angeles to demand SEIU officials let their votes be counted. Tarzana EVS workers voted Oct. 14 to join NUHW, but SEIU filed charges the day before the vote to try to stop the election. The labor board refused to stop the election, but locked the votes in a safe until the charges are dismissed.

SEIU’s obstruction has delayed workers from negotiating for a living wage and affordable health insurance.
