Labor Board Issues Complaint Against Kaiser For Illegal Union-busting Activity Against NUHW-supporting Employees
SAN FRANCISCO — Despite Kaiser Permanente’s repeated claims of “neutrality” in the upcoming election between the National Union of Healthcare Workers - California Nurses Association (NUHW-CNA) and the Service Employees International Union - United Healthcare Workers (SEIU-UHW) for 45,000 Kaiser workers in California, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) recently issued two complaints against the HMO for “interfering with, restraining, and coercing employees in the exercise of the rights” guaranteed workers under the law.
At Kaiser San Francisco Medical Center, a Kaiser Human Resources Consultant named Anthony Wong ischarged with illegally prohibiting off-duty workers from visiting the worksite to talk to their co-workers about supporting NUHW-CNA and with interrogating employees about their co-workers’ sympathies and preferences in the election.
