The article reports on the union-organizing victory of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) during an election which asked nurses at the Saint Rose Dominical Hospitals to choose between the SEIU, their existing union and upstart rival, the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organzining Committee (CNA). The SEIU won over CNA in the two-day election held inside Saint Rose Dominical Hospitals. The CNA plans to file objections with the labor board challenging how the election was conducted.
