Fresno Bee

A labor union representing health care workers filed two ballot initiatives today that seek to prohibit hospitals from overcharging patients and tamp down executive compensation at nonprofit facilities.

The Service Employees International Union-United Healthcare Workers West delivered the measures to the Attorney General’s Office on Friday. The union is aiming to qualify them for the November 2014 ballot.
