Workers at Sequoias Portola Valley reject management’s proposal 47-5

The SequoiasFebruary 7, 2012

NUHW members at The Sequoias Portola Valley rejected management’s contract proposals by a vote of 47 to 5, and demanded that their employer, Northern California Presbyterian Homes and Services (NCPHS), come back to the table and bargain a fair and equitable contract.

Workers rejected a “last, best and final” offer from NCPHS that included cuts to workers’ pension plan and substantial increases to workers’ health costs.

In December, at NCPHS’s Sequoias facility in San Francisco, SEIU accepted identical takeaways to those rejected by NUHW-represented workers in Portola Valley.
