Building security officers employed by Inter-Con Security Systems and seeking representation by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) staged a series of one-day strikes in May at 23 California Kaiser Permanente medical facilities.
The guards were protesting alleged unfair labor practices and civil rights violations during a union-organizing campaign. The security guards struck on May 6 and 7 at 16 Kaiser facilities in Northern California and on May 8 at seven Kaiser facilities in Los Angeles, San Fernando and Anaheim.
Both Inter-Con and SEIU Local 24/7—which has been trying to organize the Inter-Con guards for three years—have filed charges with the National Labor Relations Board, alleging violations against each other.
The SEIU filed 10 unfair-labor-practice charges against Inter-Con for employer surveillance and interrogation of guards. Inter-Con, in turn, filed a charge alleging a violation of the law to picket or threaten a strike for purposes of union recognition.
