Unions battle over health workers

Wall Street Journal, November 12, 2009
As labor leaders fight to sign up 10,000 healthcare workers, a California-based union is charging the Service Employees International Union with changing ballots and threatening to report a worker to immigration officials. The SEIU and the National Union of Healthcare Workers have been fighting for the right to represent 10,000 home healthcare workers in Fresno, CA. An election earlier this year gave the SEIU the victory, but the NUHW is asking that election be invalidated and a new one ordered because of what it says is evidence of intimidation. The NUHW filed charges Nov. 6 with the California Public Employment Relations Board, which oversees the election.
