NUHW Files NLRB Complaint Against SEIU Over Bank Of America Loans – 06/18/09
By Doug Cunningham
Lawyers for the new National Union of Heath Care Workers filed charges with the National Labor Relations Board Wednesday against the SEIU over a loan from Bank of America. The NUHW says federal labor law bars loans between employers and unions attempting to organize their employees. SEIU and the NUHW are locked in a struggle over representation of tens of thousands of California health care workers. The SEIU International took over one of its locals – United Health Care Workers West. Ousted leaders of that local then formed the NUHW. SEIU’s Michelle Ringuette denies any wrongdoing in the union’s loan with Bank of America.
