SEIU-UHW's Dave Regan Loses Another NLRB Election

Remember Dave Regan’s recent election defeat at Mission Hospital in Orange County, California?

That's where SEIU-UHW lost an NLRB election for approximately 1,000 workers on January 29th despite having the Boss's support through Regan's sweetheart deal with the California Hospital Association (CHA).

Well… Tasty learned that SEIU-UHW lost an NLRB election at another hospital on the same exact day.

The second election was for a small “residual” unit of workers at Southern California Hospital in Culver City, a 420-bed hospital that used to be called Brotman Medical Center.

Many of the hospital's workers have been members of SEIU-UHW for a long time. On January 29th, SEIU-UHW tried to unionize the hospital's stationary engineers, biomedical engineers and others. It's unclear whether Regan triggered this election under his backroom deal with the Hospital Association.

Whatever the case, the workers said, “No thanks.” Apparently, they did their research on SEIU-UHW and voted to reject SEIU-UHW by a 3-to-1 margin.

Here's a copy of the ballot:
