Leaders of healthcare workers union are relieved of duty
Los Angeles Times, January 28, 2009
The leaders of an Oakland, CA, union have been removed from office by their Washington bosses, the culmination of months of fighting. The Service Employees International Union served the officers of the 150,000-member United Healthcare Workers West with a trusteeship notice. It appointed its executive vice presidents, Eliseo Medina and Dave Regan, as trustees. The two groups have been in a protracted disagreement over organizing and negotiating methods and how best to represent California's healthcare workers.
