SEIU 121RN welcomes the College Hospital Cerritos LVNs and LPTs to our local. While the RNs were preparing to begin bargaining, we were informed that management initiated a campaign against the LVN/LPT Bargaining Unit at College Hospital of Cerritos to have them become non-Union and thereby eliminate their job security and other guaranteed benefits.
In an effort to protect the Bargaining Unit and build strength at the bargaining table, SEIU121RN and LVN/LPT member leaders rallied and organized the super majority of their coworkers to join SEIU121RN. Seeing that the Union had handily organized these workers in such a short period of time, the employer agreed to Voluntary Recognition. The LVNs and LPTs are currently at the table with management negotiating a new contract alongside their RN co-workers.
