They are different now—and very different in terms of conditions for patients. California nursing homes are sweatshops, a terrible place to live. We are currently in bargaining with nursing homes with a common June expiration date. Last year we also organized another 17 homes with these same employers that we are going to bring to this bargaining table.
So here members are, at the position of greatest power in their whole careers, poised to finally take giant steps forward. For Stern to talk about splitting these workers out of UHW at this moment totally undermines this power. What are the implications for the rest of the labor movement? We want to build a real movement of workers, a real social movement union—for workers by workers— where workers are encouraged and trained to be decision-making leaders.
He is about numbers at all costs versus a balance between uniting workers to change their lives and raising standards. People join unions because they want to change their lives. Workers in struggle create a real moral authority, and other people see it and it makes them want to join unions, too.
What is next inside the union? Our folks have a goal of checking the authority of the president with member democracy. There is also the question of how we decide where the union directs its resources. Every local union is constitutionally required to spend 20 percent of our budget on new organizing.NUHW's Sal Rosselli talks about SEIU lawsuit
There are some International officers who now want to take part of that 20 percent to be spent and controlled nationally. And they justify this with rhetoric about empowering local leaders through the national union and national committees. Clearly this is not just about what is happening with UHW. I know there are meetings of rank-and-file leaders that are starting to happen.
