NUHW Executive Board sworn in for three-year term
NUHW’s new Executive Board was sworn in Saturday, April 14, and seated for its first meeting of the three-year term.
All 22 members were elected by their peers in their workplaces to serve on the board, which sets the union’s agenda and manages its finances.
“I feel honored to have been chosen by my colleagues to represent my hospital on the Executive Board of NUHW,” said Barbara Buckley, a radiation tech at USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center. “The role of the E-board shows the true democratic, bottom-up union model that I am proud to be a part of!”
Buckley and Stephanie Lum Ho, an office assistant at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland are serving their first terms on board.
“I look forward to representing my co-workers on the board and helping NUHW further its mission to empower workers on the job and in their union,” Lum Ho said.
NUHW President Sal Rosselli, who was re-elected to lead NUHW, opened the swearing-in ceremony before ceding the floor to incoming Secretary–Treasurer Dan Martin, who gave a brief presentation on the union’s progress since its founding in 2009. Outgoing Secretary–Treasurer Sophia Mendoza also spoke, thanking the board for having given her the opportunity to serve.
