OK people. What do you think about quasi-bedside or non-bedside employees being a member of the union (e.g. infection control, education, quality, legal, utilization management)? I can appreciate needing protection from an unrelenting or overbearing boss/manager, but is union the way to go in these roles?

I do agree that when you have employees performing services that directly impact the patient/family a union may be needed.

My experience with unionized employees have been mostly negative. Some just basically wanted the protection of the union to keep from being bull-dozed by management as they were giving their all to the patients. Some use the union as a way to attack non-unionized employees. Still many others use it to avoid giving 100% in their jobs. Where I currently work, the preponderance of employees use unions to get by in their jobs.
