Northern Michigan Hospital nurses to vote on union

  1. Nurses at Northern Michigan Hospital may soon vote for the third time in four years to decide if the Teamsters union will continue to represent them.

    Striking nurses gave the National Labor Relations Board a petition on Wednesday seeking a decertification vote on Teamsters Local 406, the Traverse City Record-Eagle reported in a Thursday story.

    Hospital officials said last month that they received petitions signed by a majority of the hospital's nurses stating they no longer wished to be associated with the Teamsters. As a result, the hospital said it would not continue talks with the Teamsters as a strike that began more than two years ago -- one of the longest ever by nurses -- drags on.
