SEIU's top healthcare strategist to succeed union leader

Los Angeles Times, April 29, 2010

Andy Stern's choice to succeed him as president of the Service Employees International Union dropped out of the race, clearing the way for the union's top healthcare strategist to ascend to the post. Stern's longtime protege, Anna Burger, said in a memo that she would support her rival, Mary Kay Henry, an SEIU international executive vice president. Henry, 52, heads the union's healthcare division, which accounts for close to half of the SEIU's 2.2 million members nationwide.
