Union to promote health coverage reform in California
As Labor Day approaches and the November ballot looms, the Service Employees International Union says it will embark on a massive educational campaign in California to try to make sure that a health insurance bill passes legislation.
The Health Insurance Act Prop. 72, on the November ballot, would mandate that large employers provide affordable health coverage for employees and their families. SEIU nationwide is the largest union for nursing home workers.
Tens of thousands of California caregivers have joined SEIU this year, according to union officials.
