Today I was scheduled to work but a nurse manager called me and told me she's going to have a pool nurse work tonight. If I work today then its going to be my fourth day ill be working this week. But I still think its not fair to cancel my shift. Can she do that? and is it rude to ask her why she cancelled my shift?

I think Shared Governance is meant to get employees engaged and give them the illusion of power and control over their work, but whenever anything costs money or conflicts with the profit incentive your ideas etc will be denied.
It is unfortunate that the business community is so hostile to unions and would rather let a strike occur than compromise! I've heard it doesn't cost them as much as you would think because they have strike insurance. We just recently heard of the death by a strike nurse who was only 23 and placed tube eeding into a PICC line. How much experience could she have had at 23 and to be a travel nurse with no real orientation or experience.
