Green 960 Labor Report: Labor Council asks SEIU not to obstruct workers joining NUHW

NewsOctober 7, 2009

The North Bay Labor Council is now getting involved in the dispute over two labor unions. A letter was sent out to the trustees of SEIU-UHW asking them not to delay or obstruct efforts by workers at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital to form a union with the National Union of Healthcare Workers or NUHW.  Nancy Timberlake works in the trauma unit at Santa Rosa Memorial and explains what’s happened.

Dozens of homecare providers are calling on Sonoma County Supervisors to investigate SEIU’s reported strong-arm tactics in a recent contract ratification vote. I spoke with Arin Stevens; she’s been a Sonoma County in-home supportive service provider for 22 years.  She explained not only the background in this story, but the intimidation she witnessed at the polls.
