More Workers Seek Exit from SEIU-UHW

In the latest blow to Dave Regan and Co, a group of 200 SEIU-UHW members has requested an NLRB election to decertify the union so they can become “non-union.”

The effort is underway at O’Connor Woods, a retirement facility located near Stockton in Northern California. Tasty hears that the workers -- including Certified Nursing Assistants, Patient Care Attendants, Housekeepers, Dietary Workers, Maintenance Workers and Laundry Workers -- are totally fed up with the SEIU-UHW's lack of support for its members. 

Here’s the NLRB form that records workers' request for a decertification election: "A substantial number of employees assert that the certified or currently recognized bargaining representative is no longer their representative."
