    Sacramento Business Journal: 9,000 health care employees want to decertify SEIU

    by Kathy Robertson, Staff writer

    At least 64 separate petitions were filed Monday with the National Labor Relations Board on behalf of 9,000 workers calling for work site elections to decertify Service Employees International Union and bring in a new union formed last week.

    The National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW) was formed Wednesday after SEIU assumed trusteeship of United Healthcare Workers West following a nasty internal fight over organizing and bargaining tactics. The local represents 140,000 workers, mostly in California.

    NUHW said in a press call Monday it will file petitions on behalf of thousands of additional health care workers in the next few days.
