Zombie UHW tips it's hand just a little bit more with its homecare contract summary

So now that the dust has settled and we're trapped in a mediocre-at-best contract, Zombie UHW has tipped it's hand just a little bit. I think by now no one is expecting Zombie UHW do anything in an above-board manner, be accountable to members or reveal anything that might be detrimental to members until after a contract has been slipped past members.

So imagine my surprise when I received this in the mail the other day. It's the same tentative agreement summary we were offered to help us make our voting decision, with a slight rewording and a bit more information only available after the slanted ratification. I urge you to read and decide for yourself just how slimy and sneaky the Zombies can be. The first two are the tentative agreement summary, the last two are the Contract summary. They are virtually identical save for some wording to address the passage of time, but look closely at the last page of the Contract summary.
Here's the tentative agreement summary, handed out before the vote count.


Compare this to the Contract summary, mailed to us after the ratification and after any chance of changing the contract for the benefit of homecare workers.


Notice how the tentative agreement had nothing of substance to say about the health benefits and now even in the Contract summary, it is still quite vague. SEIU was hiding something all along! Our dues money a work everyone!
