Wisconsin Health Care Workers Vote UNION YES!

March 9, 2015 - Health care workers at United Pioneer Home in Luck, Wisconsin voted UNION YES! in an election conducted by the National Labor Relations Board. Workers showed their strong support for the Union, voting, 25 yes  to 14 no to join the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 1189. Dignity, respect and a voice on the job were among the reasons the workers felt they needed a Union.

"I'm looking forward to having respect and dignity on the job."  Sam Everson

Rachael Schmid and Heidi Swanson expressed that they were “excited to have a voice because the board has been speaking for us and they don't know what we want.”

Congratulations on your victory and welcome to the Union!
