Something strange about the University Hospital Nurses Union. University Hospital is one of 6 hospitals in the Health Alliance, and yet they are the only ones with a union. I work in a Health Alliance Hospital and no one from University has ever tried to recruit us for the Union.

When this Union was threatening a strike, University was dumping patients on other Health Alliance hospitals. It seemed as if I was being asked to do strikebreaker work.

At any rate, the strike was averted by the Hospital agreeing to phase out mandatory overtime within 2 years. Big deal. No other issues or details were released.

This union did not choose to educate the public about the concerns of its nurses. I contacted this reporter about his lack of details and he replied to me that neither side was talking.

This topic is now closed to further replies.
