Some Minnesota Caregivers Fighting To Withdraw From Union

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A group of personal caregivers are fighting to withdraw from their union, but say the state is making it difficult.

The MNPCA says 30 percent of home care workers need to vote on de-certifying the SEIU Healthcare Minnesota bargaining unit. But, they say, they don’t know how many PCAs are in the union because the union has not provided an up-to-date list of members.

Personal health care providers joined the union in 2013 after heated debate. The coalition says PCAs pay up to 950 dollars a year in union dues. They argue they don’t need to pay a union to take care of their family members.

The healthcare workers joined the union in support of bargaining for better wages and benefits.

    Here in the Socialist Welfare village our union party members are well taken care of. Why just a week or so ago, Mark Dayton exerted the full authority of of his office as governor to pressure the employers and saw to it that all union health care party members got a minimum of $80,000 a year and free Cadillac health care for at least another five years. We take care of our union campaign contributors her in the Socialist Welfare Village and they should be proud to share their wages with the Socialist Party in order to get these benefits. They are saving $2,500 and get to keep their same doctors.

    “The MNPCA says 30 percent of home care workers need to vote on de-certifying…”

    I thought only 5 percent of eligible voters voted to unionize. Clearly a scam.

    95 percent didn’t even know there was an election!
