FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. A hearing officer for the National Labor Relations Board has thrown out the results of a union vote at Flagstaff Medical Center.
Her ruling says the hospital's president repeatedly threatened nurses by saying they would not get raises or merit pay if they voted the union in. She called the tactics by President Bill Bradel "serious misconduct."
Nurses decided against joining the union by a vote of 242 to 211 in June.

Amazing and heartening considering how anti-union the NLRB has been recently.
Yeah ... no kidding. I'm shocked, actually, that they would rule in favor of the union.
Although the key here is whether this decision will be upheld on appeal. There have been similar cases where CNA has prevailed at lower staff levels but, if the case is appealed to the Bush appointed higher ups at the NLRB then ... it can be a different story.
