This ruling is another reminder that there is no court, politician, or law that will enact fairness in our hospitals, our clinics, or our communities. We are a union of healthcare professionals, and we know best what we need to deliver quality care and take care of our own families. Our collective potential is the only true check and balance on the sprawling corporatization of healthcare that increasingly consolidates power in the hands of administrators and executives who have never worked a day in our shoes. There's so much more to healthcare than a business plan, and our union knows that.
To weaken unions is to attempt to mute the voice of nurses, techs, nursing assistants, food service workers, housekeepers, therapists, nursing assistants-- all of us. We will not be silenced, despite this setback. There's too much at stake. Click here to commit to your union, your co-workers, your patients, and your family.
