Questions and answers > Questions related to the election at Kaiser > Have Kaiser workers who switched to NUHW lost any of their benefits, raises and job protections?
Have a question that isn’t answered? Just ask.
No. NUHW members have lost none of their contractually guaranteed wages and benefits.
In fact, NUHW members at Kaiser have kept all of the benefits that SEIU gave up in the last round of bargaining, such as a ban on subcontracting. That hasn’t stopped SEIU from misleading workers about NUHW and even paying some NUHW members to lie for them.
SEIU paid one healthcare worker, Gary Brooks, more than $30,000 in 2010 to threaten and intimidate Service and Tech workers regarding NUHW. SEIU’s use of Gary Brooks in its 2010 campaign was one of the reasons our election was overturned.
