Kaiser workers vote to stay

Submitted By SEIU-UHW

Members of the SEIU-United Healthcare Workers West (SEIU-UHW) at Kaiser Permanente hospitals and clinics across California voted to remain in their union, despite a concerted recruitment effort by the National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW) and the California Nurses Association (CNA). It was the largest private sector union election in the United States since 1941 at the Ford Motor Company.

The results - 18,844 (58.4%) for SEIU-UHW, 13,101 (40.6%) for NUHW, and 334 (1%) for no union - were tabulated Thursday, May 2 by the National Labor Relations Board after a two-day count of mail-in ballots. The result was virtually the same as the previous Kaiser election in 2010.
