A hospital in my area that I was hoping to work at once I graduate recently
held a nurses vote to go union. It passed, but not overwhelmingly. I was wondering what are your thoughts. Are unions wonderful or terrible?
thanks for your thoughts and opinions!

In a union, nurses can negotiate about wages with the employer. Nurses can walk out and strike if they are dissatisfied with their wages or their health benifits..In a non union place, employers have the upper hand on how much you get paid..With a union, termination would be tougher since the union will protect workers to an extent from an unjust termination..
As you can see having a union is a lot better..The union is basically on your side and it could never be bad
