In 2011 a federal judge ordered our 2010 Kaiser Service and Tech election overturned based on widespread misconduct and violations of the law by Kaiser and SEIU.
Kaiser broke the law when it withheld raises and benefits from NUHW members at Kaiser, and SEIU broke the law when it made threats to workers based on Kaiser’s illegal behavior.
The judge ruled that SEIU’s violations of the law were so serious that she ordered the National Labor Relations Board to re-run our election.
Once the NLRB sets an election date, board agents will closely monitor the conduct of all parties.
