Video: More than 600 caregivers join NUHW at USC University Hospital
More than 600 USC University Hospital workers joined the National Union of Healthcare Workers in a two-day election that capped a months-long battle between caregivers, hospital management, and the SEIU.
Beyond Chron, May 28, 2010:
NUHW’s 393-122 victory over “no union” followed SEIU’s removal of its name from the ballot last week, claiming that it could not overcome management intimidation of its own members. … NUHW’s victory is sweet vindication for NUHW worker leaders and organizers arrested and disciplined by management in recent weeks, and should have workers asking whether they want a union that runs from management intimidation or stays and fights.
