Nurses at Michigan Medicine are United in fighting for a fair contract.

Over 30 MNA-UMPNC nurses joined the bargaining team at the table this month to share their stories with Michigan Medicine management, highlighting the dangers of mandatory overtime. The team also presented management with research showing the dangers of working beyond 12 hours, and examples of laws that make mandatory overtime illegal.
