NLRB asks federal court to award raises and full retro pay to NUHW members at Kaiser

NewsOctober 5, 2010

The National Labor Relations Board petitioned a federal court yesterday for an injunction ordering Kaiser Permanente to immediately repay more than $1 million in illegally-withheld raises and other benefits that members of the National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW) are entitled to under the terms of their union contract.

The withheld raises had become the centerpiece of a multi-million-dollar campaign by the SEIU to stop 43,500 more Kaiser employees from joining NUHW in an union election that ends tomorrow—the largest private-sector election since the 1940s.
