Nursing Strikes

  1. Can anyone direct me to a site or resource logging nursing strikes as events? That is, a log which merely tells what facility's nurses struck and when, in tandem with other facilities, nationwide. I am interested in the activity of strikes on a sort of graphed time line. I have done a full google search without result, including governmental studies of work stoppages, the majority of which discussed are of 1,000 workers or more and so not discussing nurses strikes.
    Is there such a resource that anyone knows of?

    Contact the United American Nurses - the national labor union for RNs. Its a branch of the ANA & an affiliate of the AFL-CIO. They might be able to direct you to the info resources youre looking for.
    You might also check with the AFL-CIO itself -
    the US Dept of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics -
    or the US Dept of Health and Human Services -

    I know the info is out there because I read data a while back that showed nurses strikes have been on the rise over the past 5 years all across the country.
