Since this involves Teamsters, I thought this was worth mentioning because some pretty big allegations were made by this company and the judge did not side with them.


A federal district court in California recently dismissed an employer’s claim that SEIU and affiliates, including the CTW Investment Group, violated RICO when they allegedly conspired in a “corporate campaign” that used extortion to unionize hospitals. Prime Healthcare Servs., Inc. v. Service Employees, 202 LRRM 3685, 2015 BL 93290 (S.D. Cal 2015).

Prime Healthcare Services, Inc., which operates 28 hospitals in eight states and describes itself as “largely non-union,” brought the action against the Service Employees International Union, United Healthcare Workers West, Change to Win, CTW Investment Group and three union officers.

Change to Win is a union federation made up of SEIU, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and the United Farmworkers of America.
