 EMPLOYEES AT CAMP HILL CARE CENTER VOTE FOR PSSU
 CAMP HILL, Pa., Aug. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Employees at the Camp Hill


Care Center, 46 Erford Road, here, have voted to be represented by the Pennsylvania Social Services Union (PSSU), the union reported today.
 Balloting was conducted Thursday by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) at the nursing home in this Cumberland County community near Harrisburg.
 PSSU, which is Local 668, Service Employees International Union (SEIU), AFL-CIO, will represent 68 employees at this 120-bed facility. The jobs include nurse's aides, dietary aides, cooks, housekeeping and laundry personnel.
 The center is owned by Beverly Enterprises, the nation's largest for-profit nursing home chain.
 PSSU President Paul Krissel welcomed the workers, saying, "We will now put our best efforts toward securing a labor contract to upgrade the wages and working conditions of the employees and improve patient care for the residents."
 Joint bargaining will begin next month for the center and 17 other Beverly-owned homes across Pennsylvania. Two other SEIU locals are involved -- Local 585 and Local 1199P.
 These three locals launched a joint project in June aimed at improving wages, working conditions and patient care at nursing homes throughout Pennsylvania.
