My place of employment has a very aggressive union trying to get the workers to unionize. The mud slinging between the hospital and the union reps has become overwhelming. Its starting to look like there will be a vote on whether to unionize or not.
Im undecided on how I feel about it. I've seen unions do good, and I've seen them cause harm.
The one thing that makes me nervous is the fact that the union does not consist of just nurses. They want everyone in it. I tend to believe nursing would be better represented by a union that focuses on nursing and the complex issues nurses face.
Is that a fair assessment?
If you are union, do you feel they have improved things for you?
We all float down here.
