- Jun 19, '12 by chucksterInteresting article and if accurate, certainly calls into question the motivation of the CA nurses union in some limited areas. My worry is that anti-union elements, which appear to be growing and were certainly bolstered by recent events in Wisconsin, will now get a ton of PAC-type money to spin this in a way that casts the CA union and all RN's in the state, in a very negative light. With unlimited - and anonymous - funding now the law of the land, I think all unions need to be concerned and need to make certain that union and public interests are 100% aligned. Even a little blood in the water can whip the sharks up into a frenzy.
