Here's another side of the Saint Agnes story from a real RN -- not a union organizer.
From the Fresno Bee:
'Total lack of respect'
Sunday, Mar. 08, 2009
The California Nurses Association (CNA) is back trying to "infect" the nurses.
Last May, the nurses at Saint Agnes Medical Center spoke and gave the CNA its biggest defeat ever -- 94% of the nurses went to the polls, the results were 452 no, 327 yes.
Since May, the CNA has dragged this decision through the courts, and ﬁnally, because of a technicality, a judge overturned the vote.
Now we are getting ready for another election March 11 and 12.
The CNA prides itself on being a "nurses' advocate"! So why did they not listen to us? This shows a total lack of respect for the nurses' voice! I can't even imagine having to deal with them on a daily basis. I keep thinking that maybe it is not our best interest, but our money that they are after (a full-time nurse would pay almost $100 a month in dues!).
Let's give them another dose of "no" medicine, so they will ﬁnally stay away!

My employer has shown , through their behaviour ,whose best interest they are concerned with . Recently ,they wanted to cut our benefits , The union said NO , result my benefits untouched , non union facilities had the cuts implemented . We rejected the union on our first vote , but in the time between votes , our management harassed the staff so much and didn't match what we would have got had we joined the union on the first vote , we voted the union in on the second vote .
