    CNA's Union-Busting in Ohio-An Open Letter

    The fact that the topic brought a lot of new posters to the site shows how strongly nurses are compelled to speak out against the unconsciable tactics of CNA.

    CNA's Union-Busting in Ohio-An Open Letter

    Re "I do not understand how this could happen without a deal between the union and the employer."-- So-called neutrality agreements occur under the provisions of the National Labor Relations Act. The CNA has had many elections under the same provisions for neutrality. In the countries of the European Union, when a majority of workers show signed cards to the employer, the employer must recognize the union--no intimidation, no interference. This is also allowed under the provisions of "The Act" in the United States, but employers are usually unwilling.

    Yes, I went to that site. I has some intersting stats, like "Most Users EVER=15" !! Now, there's a movement for you.

    SEIU Vote at Ohio Catholic Healthcare Partners

    I have NEVER heard of management filing for a union election! HOW did that happen? Oh, I don't know, maybe by labor law?

    Good questions---another union could have been on the ballot if even one worker asked for that union. Plus, CNA had three years to do this, but they do not work that way. Their history is to come in at the last minute and ruin other nurses' and healthcare workers' elections.

    CNA's Union-Busting in Ohio-An Open Letter

    My goodness, how did we get on to "my bill is stronger than your bill"? THIS IS ABOUT CNA ACTING AS A UNION BUSTER. One of labor's main issues is to get a "freedom to organize" bill passed, so workers will be able to vote for a union, free from interference, intimidation, and harrassment--sounds like the neutrality agreements both SEIU and CNA have participated in before, and like the one in Ohio. (Although, previously, most of us would have thought the freedom was from employers doing these things--not from unions!) Is the CNA suddenly opposed to freedom to organize on principle? Or just when you are not on the ballot??? Do you want this vicious in-fighting to go on forever? Or did CNA just want to bust up an election for 8000 workers because they were not there? (that would be a "yes".) CNA would not even allow a large portion of those healthcare workers into their organization, so their function was purely as a spoiler. No matter what justifications you offer up for it, CNA harmed those workers. If CNA wanted in, they had 3 years to act--but that is not their modus operandi. They would rather destroy workers' chances at a better life. Shame on you, CNA.

    CNA's Union-Busting in Ohio-An Open Letter

    CNA has done a very destructive and vicious thing this week, and the AFL-CIO did nothing to stop them. Shame on both. 8000 families that could have been improving their lives will have to wait longer. And for what? CNA didn't bother to get on the ballot at any time during the past three years. They don't want anything to do with the non-RNs and couldn't care less whether the LPNs, technologists, housekeepers, etc. live or die. It's a sad moment in the history of labor except for one thing: CNA has exposed itself for the egomaniac-directed organization it is. CNA is in it just for CNA. Go back to California and let healthcare workers organize for a better life in Ohio and elsewhere.
