NLRB removes SEIU blocking charge and begins scheduling elections to join NUHW
September 21st, 2009
But after hundreds of workers protested in front of NLRB offices in Los Angeles and Oakland, the NLRB has finally begun resolving the charges. The NLRB lifted the first of many blocking charges by SEIU and scheduled elections at three facilities. Long-term care workers at The Sequoias in Portola Valley and housekeeping workers at Los Alamitos Medical Center and Providence Tarzana Medical Center will vote within the month.
The NLRB could soon dismiss blocking charges at dozens more facilities, finally allowing thousands of California healthcare workers the right to choose their union.
