REDDING, CA — More than half of the employees at Shasta Regional Medical Center being represented by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) recently signed a petition to decertify the union, according to the Record Searchlight.
According to a union spokesperson, however, no official election by the 171 cleaning and maintenance professionals has taken place and, as a result, they are still legally represented by the union, the story stated.
A complaint against the Shasta Regional Medical Center with the National Labor Relations Board alleging federal labor-law violations was filed by the SEIU on Thursday, the story noted.
Mary Schottmiller, attorney for the Shasta Regional Medical Center, said: "[Administrators had received] objective evidence that a majority of the employees [no longer wished to be represented by SEIU … and] accordingly, the employer hereby withdraws recognition of SEIU."
Should the petition be ratified and accepted by the National Labor Relations Board, it would be the third time Shasta Regional employees had ousted a union, the story added.
