    I recently led our Registered Nurses in the formation of a professional union at our Hospital. I would be happy to answer any questions you have. Hang in there!

    I am currently a member of DCNA, in Washington, DC. I believe in unionization. There is definately strength in numbers. The challenge, however, is remaining united to achieve a common goal. We, by the way, are currently on strike over working conditions, i.e., manditory overtime, staffing, RN participation on patient care committees, & a reasonable weekend incentive program. Addressing such issues individually would be mission impossible. 1300 united RNs withholding services, w/ 67 crossing the line, packs a serious punch to hospital management. I'd like to encourage you to GO UNION!!
