320 McLaren Macomb Employees Vote to Join OPEIU Local 40

320 McLaren Macomb Employees Vote to Join OPEIU Local 40

Mt. Clemens, MI (Aug. 29, 2019) – A group of 320 clerical associates, couriers, critical care techs, dispatchers, lab assistants, patient access reps, patient sitters, pharmacy techs and several other classifications at McLaren Macomb hospital voted last night 172 to 113 to form a union with the Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU) Local 40. There were 35 additional ballots that remained unopened and were not determinative in the election outcome.

The vote proceeded despite McLaren’s efforts to defy the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Region 7’s recently issued Decision and Direction of Election by attempting to stop the election from proceeding and challenging nearly 100 voters, which would have resulted in a delay of election results. The NLRB, however, ordered the ballots to be opened and included in the total vote count.
