St. Charles Employees Win Union Representation

The Lund Report
The largest, private sector, Oregon NLRB election in over a decade has been settled

February 2, 2011 -- St. Charles Medical Center employees in Bend voted in a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) election to form a union with Service Employees International Union Local 49 on January 5th.

Election results were delayed due to ballot challenges by the NRLB. Today the NLRB opened ballots and 600 St. Charles workers will now be represented by SEIU Local 49. This vote was the largest private sector NLRB election since 1996.
