A union power play

Prop. 23 — No. This proposal to force unnecessary and expensive regulation on dialysis clinics was rejected by voters two years ago. This is an attempt by a union, SEIU-UHW West, to force clinic owners to submit to its demands. If Prop. 23 were to pass, many clinics would close, threatening the lives of 80,000 patients. In 2018, 59.9% of voters rejected this measure. In 2020, voters should reject it again.
