The ousted leaders of Oakland-based United Healthcare Workers West on Wednesday announced that they have formed a new union and intend to begin recruiting their former members, a continuation of brinkmanship between UHW and the Service Employees International Union. The new group is called the National Union of Healthcare Workers, and organizers are busily collecting union cards from UHW members, the first step toward recognition in workplaces.

Workers at healthcare giant Kaiser Permanente in California voted to remain with the SEIU-United Healthcare Workers West union in a bitterly contested election pitting a labor giant against a smaller rival. The SEIU-UHW said it garnered nearly 19,000 employee votes, or 58% of the total counted, compared with about 13,000, or 41%, for the competing National Union of Healthcare Workers. About 1% voted for no union. The results were announced late Thursday after the National Labor Relations Board counted mail-in ballots for two days.

Healthcare union workers at a Long Beach mental health facility are scheduled to hold an “unfair labor strike” Wednesday afternoon in response to what they say are unsafe working conditions. The five-day strike is expected to end Monday, according to the United Healthcare Workers West. Union workers say lax safety measures at La Casa Mental Rehabilitation Center have contributed to patients escaping regularly and commiting violent attacks against employees and other patients.
