  Felipe, Local 250 organizer during the election campaign at Mercy General in November, 2001, has returned to help the technical bargaining unit win their election. Is he determined or what?


  Remembering some pre-contract moments in this location: Carla, Josie, Edna, and I recalling how we had to skulk around the various floors and break rooms to get the union message across. I believe Josie holds the record for most times "being thrown out" by management, but it only made her stronger!


  Sal Roselli, President of Local 250, explaining how Local 250 contracts are "raising the bar" for all health care workers.


  Linda, an SEIU staff person, walked some nervous first-time public speakers through the press conference. Now, if I just had her great voice......



The announcement has been made. 9000 CHW service employees statewide represented by SEIU Local 250 have ratified their first contract with CHW. Much credit must be given to Glen Goldstein, shown here waving (no, that is NOT his cadillac!). Glen was in charge of Local 250's successful organizing effort in Sacramento.
