Nurses and non nursing staff feel the pain as an ongoing organizing effort by the California Nurses Association drives a stake in the morale of the medical center.
Daily harassment by union organizers as well as uninvited and unwelcome visits to nurses homes have forced nurses to take to the internet to publicize that their guests are not welcomed, creating a website http://ourvoiceourchoice.org/
in an attempt to drown out the drone of the CNA/NNOC claim of being the "voice for nurses".
Good luck to the nurses of St Agnes Medical Center Fresno as the try to prevent unionization by the California Nurses Association.

Quote from Nancy2
What’s wrong with the current law?
Well that's just like CNA to misrepresent the truth! yes, they probably did get cards signed prior to the election. Maybe even 60%. But, when the nurses were educated by their PEERS about what the union really spends dues money on and their Anti Catholic agenda, THEY CHANGED THEIR MINDS!! Which was apparrent by the VOTE!!! EFCA is the biggest assault on America ever! The secret ballot is a main stay of American culture and should be preserved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The National Labor Relations Act states: “Employees shall have the right to self-organization, to form, join, or assist labor organizations….”
It was designed to protect employee choice on whether to form unions, but it has been turned upside down.
The current system is not like any democratic election held anywhere else in our society.
Employers have turned the NLRB election process into management-controlled balloting—the employer has all the power, controls the information workers can receive and routinely poisons the process by intimidating, harassing, coercing and firing people who try to organize unions.
On top of that, the law’s penalties are so insignificant that many companies treat them as just another cost of doing business.
By the time employees vote in an NLRB election, if they can get to that point, a free and fair choice isn’t an option. ...
