Proposed merger of California healthcare union draws intense protest

Los Angeles Times, November 24, 2008

Under a new proposal, as many as 300,000 healthcare employees now represented by three separate local unions across California will be rolled into one enormous union. At the same time, the Service Employees International Union wrapped up hearings into allegations that leaders of one of those locals misused dues to create a secret war chest to fight the merger. Both sides say the outcome will affect patients because many concessions the unions fight for affect quality of care.
