      Listen to what it means to have a voice on the job.

      Leslie Krauss

      “When RNs join together with our service and tech co-workers under NUHW-CNA, we will have the strongest coalition in Kaiser history. With more than 70,000 Kaiser employees united, we will have unprecedented power when negotiating.”

      Leslie Krauss, RN, Kaiser Redwood City, Medicine Department, SNA Member

      Sofia Villanueva

      “Ever since SEIU took over our union, we don’t have enough staff. I used to have a permanent area, but since they combined Lift Team and Care Partners when they made us rebid for our jobs, we’re forced to work multiple units in one shift. We’re facing injuries from the workload, and our union won’t help us. We need NUHW so we can have a union that fights for us again.”

      - Sofia Villanueva, Float Pool, SEIU-UHW Member

      Christine Messinger

      “SEIU-UHW is telling people they’ll lose everything if they switch to NUHW. It’s not true. I voted for NUHW, and all of our benefits remain intact. As a member of the NUHW bargaining team, I know first-hand that we’ve already reached many agreements with Kaiser. But we won’t accept Kaiser’s takeaway proposals because we stand by our members, unlike SEIU-UHW who imposed a 9¢ per hour Partnership Tax and agreed to 1,000 layoffs.”

      - Christine Messinger, NUHW Bargaining Team IBHS, Psychiatry, Kaiser Vallejo

      Ron King

      “I have worked for Kaiser and fought for workers’ rights for 20 years. I support NUHW because NUHW is committed to enforcing our contract, lowering our union dues by 25%, and closing the wage gap between Kaiser workers in Northern and Southern California.”
      - Therron “Ron” King, Surgical Tech II, Kaiser South Bay, with NUHW President Sal Rosselli 

      Christian Lambert

      “Since SEIU-UHW took over our contract, we have seen nothing but takeaways. Now, thanks to the Kaiser-SEIU-UHW Partnership, we also have to pay a 9¢ an hour tax just to work here! Enough is enough. I am voting for NUHW because I trust NUHW.”
      - Christian Lambert, EVS, Kaiser Richmond, SEIU-UHW Member

      nuhw ernesto gonzales

      “When SEIU was here, we didn’t even feel like we had a union. Now with NUHW, we really feel like our union has our back.”
      - Ernesto Gonzales, Nutrition Services, Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital and NUHW Member

       

       

      Adela-Rea-nuhw

      “Last year at USC Hospital, we won a contract with raises and no cuts. We could not have done it as members of any other union. NUHW is willing to take a stand when members’ livelihoods are on the line, and keep up the fight until we get the contract we deserve.”

      - Adela Rea, Respiratory Care Practitioner, Keck Medical Center of USC 

       

      Turusew-Gedebu-Wilson

      nuhw-helen-york-jones
      “Talk about a voice at work – with NUHW I was able to testify at a legislative hearing in Sacramento on holding administrators accountable for awarding unconscionable executive pay packages while mismanaging hospital resources. NUHW fights hard to make sure my voice is heard, both in Sacramento and at work every day.”


      – George Ross, 25-year LVN at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital and NUHW member
