Non-professional workers at Delaware County Memorial Hospital have voted to be represented by District 1199C, writes John George of the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The Philadelphia-based union already represents employees such as cafeteria workers, laundry workers, maintenance staff, and other service employees at eight area hospitals.
According to George, District 1199C officials said that among the 203 eligible workers at Delaware County Memorial Hospital in Drexel Hill, part of Crozer-Keystone Health System, 95 voted in favor of joining the union and 60 voted against.
Hospital officials were not immediately available to comment on the union vote.
Delaware County Memorial Hospital had another union vote earlier this year when its nursing staff voted to join the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals.
