Nursing Unions / Union vote at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia
« Last post by Geneviève on July 08, 2009, 07:41:38 PM »
Well, it's official the nurses voted the CNA down with a vote of 309 against and 267 in favor.  Look for the CNA to whine about the loss, here's how the Philadelphia Inquirer covered it http://www.philly.com/philly/business/homepage/50161757.html.  Congratulations Hahnemann nurses for making your choice known.

It appears that Centerpoint nurses can claim victory in their decertification vote.  The nurses of Just Let Us Vote (jluv.org) worked hard and after two days of voting the outcome was a vote of 226 - 78 to end union representation.  Congrats to Jerilyn and the team.  Their website can be found at www.jluv.org!

General Discussion / Nursing Unions
« Last post by Kimberly07 on March 17, 2009, 10:03:52 PM »
What is this trend in nursing today that practicing professionals need to 'pay" unions to speak for them?  Why isn't the idea of professionalism promoted in today's practicing nurses.   In order to change an undesirable behavior, be it from a patient, co worker, or practice; the environment that accpepts the undesirable behavior must be changed first.  I am tired of nurses not taking responsibilty for their practice and expecting an outside force that is not based in nursing to solve a nursing issue?

Nursing Unions / Nursing Unions and Neutrality Agreements
« Last post by Kimberly07 on March 17, 2009, 09:58:12 PM »
The new trend in nursing union's organizing attempts are corporate born Election Procedure Agreements (EPA).  The mere idea of them devalues the professionalism that nursing has worked so hard to achieve.  The California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee (CNA/NNOC) is currently attempting to organize the nurses at Hahnemann University Hospital.  Similar efforts are occuring at several other Tenet owned facilities in Texas.  The formulation of the EPA is an unlawful support and assistance by Tenet to hand pick their own union.  Our employee information such a addresses and phone numbers have been offered freely to union organizers.  Our management team has a "gag" order applied and our natural chain of command for obtaining information and  support have been stripped from their essential roles.  Under a Supreme Court decision in Chamber of Commerce v. Brown, 128 S. Ct. 2408 (2008), employees have a Section 7 right to "refuse to join unions, which implies an underlying right to receive information opposing unionization."  The EPA blatantly favors the CNA/NNOC and discriminates against the employees rights to provide opposition to the CNA viewpoints.
