NUHW Files Challenge To Fresno County Home Care Workers Union Election – 06/23/09
By Doug Cunningham
The National Union of Health Care Workers Monday filed a challenge to the homecare providers union election won by SEIU. NUHW alleges that SEIU spent an estimated $10 million and used intimidation and illegal threats in the election. NUHW was formed by leaders of an SEIU local taken over by the international union. It says just 117 votes out of nearly 6,000 cast could swing the election and it’s challenging the certification of the ballot count.
