About CHEU

The Caregivers and Healthcare Employees Union is an independent union formed in 2001 by health care workers that wanted to be represented alongside their RN colleagues in a sister union. CHEU’s goals are to win strong union representation, improve conditions for employees and patients, and fight for workplace democracy and justice. CHEU is an affiliate of the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee (CNA/NNOC).

CHEU Facilities

CHEU currently represents health care workers in several facilities across Northern and Southern California, in both private and public sector settings. The first group of workers to join CHEU were the health care workers at Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center. Thereafter, thousands more organized and joined CHEU for improved patient care and solidarity with their RN colleagues. With CHEU representing health care workers and sister union CNA representing registered nurses, the combination of wall-to-wall organizing and representation continues to build class solidarity among all our union siblings.
