Should doctors form a union or join the SEIU?

There’s no question that health reform needs to rebuild around primary care medicine.

Doctors give their own suggestions, including aligning generalist salaries comparable to how the UK pays GPs in their nationalized health system, which is approximately “$230,000 a year plus 25% performance bonuses.”

Some other more aggressive tactics involve forming a physician union, or joining the Service Employment International Union (SEIU). One doctor has initiated talks between his medical society and the union, and “recommends that physicians spur their local medical societies to get involved in talks with the SEIU.”
