Sutter worker files another complaint against union
Sacramento Business Journal

A respiratory care worker at Sutter Roseville Medical Center has filed another federal complaint against Service Employees International Union-United Healthcare Workers West alleging the union continues to coerce her and her colleagues into paying full union dues even though they are not union members. Mary Massen won a federal settlement in late 2011 after filing charges with the National Labor Relations Board. The ruling — and ongoing legal dispute — highlights a long-standing fight over union efforts to collect fees from nonmembers.
