Ousted labor leaders vow to start rival union

AP/San Francisco Chronicle, January 30, 2009
The ousted leaders of a California healthcare workers union say they will found a labor organization to rival their former parent union, the Service Employees International Union. The announcement came the day after SEIU President Andy Stern in Washington, DC, wrested control of Oakland-based United Healthcare Workers-West by removing its 100 officers and placing the local under a trustee's care. Sal Rosselli, former president of the 150,000-member local, said it is too early to say who will lead the new national union and how long it would take to get it up and running.
