SEIU merger to create healthcare 'mega-local' in California
The board of the Service Employees International Union has decided to merge 240,000 members from three California locals into one mega-local representing nursing home workers and home health aides. Some California healthcare workers have fought the merger. Oakland-based United Healthcare Workers leaders have called the move undemocratic, and had called for a boycott of a December advisory vote by SEIU that asked members whether they wanted to merge all healthcare workers or only long-term care workers into a single California local.
