USC hospital workers to vote on union

Los Angeles Times, May 25, 2010

Culminating an election battle, about 700 workers at USC University Hospital in Los Angeles are scheduled to vote on whether to join a new union in a campaign that has highlighted a deep rift in the labor movement. The workers casting ballots will face two choices: forgo union representation or affiliate with the National Union of Healthcare Workers. The healthcare workers union is challenging the dominance of the giant Service Employees International Union at hospitals and nursing homes throughout California, the Los Angeles Times reports.
