There seems to be more than one confusion on how a union can be of benefit to nurses. Especially when the grass seems so much greener on the other side. A union comes to a facility usually due to a group of nurses who decide that they want to have some say in their working conditions. A union will come in and give you a rundown on what they can do for you. A relationship is established. The guiding force of a union is a contract. The contract makes aware the salary, with a scale, and the benefits of nurses. Further, it talks about discipline, and the process that management needs to take. It discusses layoffs. It is a nurse's book of rights.
