Federal jury rules against new union seeking to represent healthcare workers

Los Angeles Times, April 12, 2010

A federal jury in San Francisco ruled against an insurgent union fighting the giant Service Employees International Union for representation of tens of thousands of healthcare workers throughout California. The rival group split off from the SEIU in January 2009 amid a jurisdictional dispute. The SEIU filed suit in federal court, accusing the breakaway unit and its leaders of sabotage, theft, vandalism, and other offenses. The NUHW and its leader, Sal Rosselli, denied any wrongdoing.
