Monterey County employees to announce petition to leave SEIU
Monterey County employees will announce they have filed petitions to join the National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW) and leave their old union, SEIU Local 521 at 11:30 a.m. today in front of the ER entrance at Natividad Medical Center, 1441 Constitution Blvd., Salinas.
Included in the filing are 800 healthcare workers at Natividad Medical Center, as well as more than 2,000 other public service workers including 911 dispatchers, child support workers, and sanitation workers.
Natividad is not just a podunk hospital either - it's about 175 beds, and serves as the county hospital for Monterey County - probably the reason why it is covered by the guvmint-oriented SEIU 521 instead of the privately-oriented Zombie UHW.
We're still waiting for all those SEIU fans out there to tell us why we should remain happy guests in the Hotel California...
