A Healthcare Workers labor union announced Thursday they are launching a campaign against the recall election of California Gov. Gavin Newsom. “The National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW) launched a statewide advertising campaign today encouraging supporters of universal health care to reject efforts to qualify a costly recall of the governor.”
It’s interesting that a healthcare workers labor union claims they represent the concerns of their members when thousands of medical and health care workers lost their jobs during the 10 months of Gov. Gavin Newson’s COVID statewide lockdown.
“We are a real threat now,” Randy Economy, Senior Advisor and media spokesman for RecallGavin2020.com, told the Globe. “Welcome to the political circus of California in 2021.”
Economy said the health care workers are some of the people who should be most concerned about our governor, and what he has done with their jobs during the pandemic. “Gov. Gavin Newsom failed them the most during the pandemic,” he said.
“The union’s gross characterization of its members is telling,” Economy said. “We’re not here to debate labor union leaders. We’re here to help the average Californians get out of the pandemic.”
Economy said since Day 1, Gov. Newsom has botched the management of the pandemic. “We are not concerned with union bosses – only the average Californian who has had to deal with this.”
“A recall election is estimated to cost taxpayers between $80 and $100 million and would threaten to dominate the focus of elected officials while COVID-19 continues to spread,” the press statement from the NUHW union said.
“The cost of the recall is mere pennies compared with the overall state budget,” Economy said. “That’s just a silly talking point.”
“What we can’t afford is Gov. Newsom continuing as governor.”
Economy asked the Globe if we know who the healthcare worker labor union is. “The National Union of Healthcare Workers,” the Globe replied. “Never heard of it,” he said. “I don’t really know who they are.”
“NUHW, whose members include respiratory therapists, nurses, nursing assistants, medical technicians and mental health therapists at hospitals and clinics from San Diego to Eureka, endorsed Gov. Gavin Newsom for governor in 2017, following a vote of all its member-elected stewards,” the NUHW press statement said.
“The digital media campaign asks Californians to join the union’s more than 15,000 members in rejecting the unnecessary recall,” the NUHW said. The link goes to a Facebook page, which was posted 23 hours ago and has 3 shares and 10 likes.
