The votes are in: Kaiser optical workers are staying united in NUHW
June 5th, 2013
It’s official: Kaiser optical workers are staying united in NUHW-CNA.
Three months ago, with barely a handful of signatures, SEIU filed a petition to decertify our bargaining unit. It was obvious SEIU was just trying to pull off a publicity stunt they could use in the service and tech election. Within days, a supermajority of optical workers signed a petition affirming our unity as NUHW members.
Today, the votes were counted, and we made it official. By a vote of 214 for NUHW to 103 for SEIU with 22 challenges and 3 voting for “Neither,” Kaiser optical workers demonstrated that we stand firmly with our union, NUHW-CNA.
We’re saying NO to Kaiser’s cuts and NO to SEIU’s sell-out agenda. We’re saying YES to a union that stands up for workers.
