Word on the street is that union President Dave Regan's Faustian bargain with the California hospital industry -- cuddle up with hospitals' management to keep patient problems quiet and receive more than 60,000 new hospital workers -- is now teetering on the brink of collapse. Apparently Regan shut up, but the hospitals didn't put up the new workers. Good riddance.

Earlier this year, Capitol Watchdog wrote about how SEIU-UHW union President Dave Regan scuttled a deal between six financially struggling California Catholic community hospitals and Prime Healthcare out of spite. Regan used his political clout to stop Attorney General Kamala Harris's approval of the sale despite support from the California Nurses Association and SEIU members at the facilities, as well as from Consumer Watchdog (Capitol Watchdog's sponsor).
