On a Roll… NUHW Wins 2nd Election in a Week

On Friday, a unit of 270 non-union hospital workers in Northern California voted to join NUHW by a two-to-one margin. This, despite an anti-union campaign waged by the hospital's parent company -St. Joseph Health System.

Here's the final tally from the NLRB election at St. Joseph Hospital Eureka, which is the largest hospital in Humboldt County:

NUHW:  149
No Union:  74
Challenged Ballots:  9

The election comes just four days after NUHW won a 150-person unit at hospital in Southern California by a nearly two-to-one margin.

Looks like NUHW is on a roll!
