Green 960 Labor Report: Kaiser workers vote to join NUHW

January 28th, 2010

The battle rages on between the SEIU United Healthcare Workers West and the NUHW, the National Union of Healthcare Workers. Ballots were counted on Tuesday for 2,300 workers in three bargaining units. And… the vote was to walk away from SEIU and join a union that was formed in January of 2009.

I spoke with Leila Valdivia.  She works as an RN in the Intensive Care Unit at the Los Angeles Medical Center of Kaiser.  Ms. Valdivia explains the contentious battle.
