<<<Nursing's "Wake-Up Call" to Congress
On May 8, Congress will receive a wake-up call from union RNs represented by the SEIU Nurse Alliance
Event is open to non-members - anyone can participate.......
** Nurses To Send Wake-Up Call **
"Patients Need Quality Time - Not Overtime". That's the
message the SEIU Nurse Alliance will deliver to Congress
and state legislators on May 8 - as part of its national
Wake-Up Call From America's Nurses........
** Get Involved on May 8th **
Come to the U.S. Capitol on May 8, and join hundreds
of nurses who'll be sending Congress a wake-up call
They'll be bringing their alarm clocks and setting
them off in unison. Last year they lined up thousands of pairs of worn nurses shoes along the steps of the US Capitol Building. Photos and more info can be viewed at the website.
For May 8 event and registration information,
If you can't make it to Washington, you have two ways
to make your voice heard on May 8:
(1) Fax a letter to your members of Congress on May
8 and ask them to support the Safe Nursing and Patient
Care Act. Register for that and SEIU will send you a reminder with a link to a sample letter that week.
(2) Join thousands of nurses across the country who'll
make phone calls to their members of Congress on May
(a) Call the Capitol switchboard toll-free
and ask for your Representative and/or Senators........
(b) Tell them to support and co-sponsor the Safe Nursing
and Patient Care Act (HR 3238/S 1686).......
The more phone calls and letters nurses send, the more
Congress will get the message. Make plans to participate in one way or the other and ask other nurses and supporters to do the same!.......
** Take Overtime Survey **
More and more nurses are making their voices heard,
and you can too by completing our online overtime survey........
SEIU is using nurse surveys to demonstrate the crisis
of quality care to legislators and explain how we can
end the crisis through ending mandatory overtime.........
