SEIU borrows business' anti-union tactics to fend off a rival

Los Angeles Times, June 24, 2009

The Service Employees International Union alleges that the upstart National Union of Healthcare Workers is intimidating and misleading workers. As a result, the SEIU is urging federal officials to throw out petitions signed by tens of thousands of its own members who have asked to be represented by the rival upstart group. The SEIU has moved to block organizing elections at hospitals, clinics, and nursing homes throughout California.
