I'm still on the fence about Union/Non-Union. Our Nurses voted for Union over 2 years ago and we have yet to see a contract. In the meantime, we put up with no wage increases (a Labor Relations judge recently required our employer to reverse this and give us our increase, retroactive and with interest), no say in certain Employee Surveys (the "Union" says our input isn't necessary) and other similar slights. Meanwhile, we're still short on staff, relying on Traveler Nurses (God Bless them), but the morale here is at a low. Many nurses have quit and gone onto other, Non-Union hospitals (who pay more) or to a setting with less stress, or quit nursing entirely. So for the time being, the Nurses are in limbo, and without any hope of change in the foreseeable future. I'm sticking it out, however, because I truly believe in Nursing and that what I do IS important and serves our Community.
I'll let the bureaucrats "figure it out."
