With over 2 million Californians out of work, healthcare workers need a union with the strength to protect your jobs and benefits. The SEIU United Healthcare Workers-West (SEIU UHW) is the largest and most powerful healthcare union in the western United States. SEIU UHW was formed on January 1, 2005 after the members of Local 250 in Northern California and Local 399 in Southern California overwhelmingly voted to unify. Our 150,000+ members work in every facet of the healthcare industry, including hospitals, clinics, nursing homes and homecare.See MoreSee less
