SEIU Rebuffed by California Home Health Care Workers

OAKLAND, Calif., March 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In an unprecedented election, nursing home and home healthcare workers overwhelmingly have voted to remain members of United Healthcare Workers-West, demonstrating their unwillingness to be forcibly transferred to another Service Employees International Union local branch.

Despite widespread interference, including a disinformation campaign aimed at suppressing voter turnout, 99 percent of nursing home and 96 percent of homecare workers who voted agreed that staying in UHW would be best for them, their families and, most importantly, the people they serve.


We continue to monitor the activities of the Service Employees International Union as they take aim at organizing home care workers around the country. Let us know of union organizing efforts of home care workers in your are.
