Fireworks erupt as Kaiser vote count on unions continues
Sacramento Business Journal

Inside the federal building in Oakland, representatives from the National Labor Relations Board and two rival unions were checking ballot envelopes and discussing challenges Wednesday as they prepare to count thousands of ballots that will decide what union represents more than 45,500 workers at Kaiser Permanente. Workers have voted by mail over the last month on whether to keep Service Employees International Union-United Healthcare Workers West as their union, replace it with the National Union of Healthcare Workers, now affiliated with the California Nurses Association, or neither one.
