Beaumont nurses are the latest groups of RNs in Michigan to launch a campaign to join the Michigan Nurses Association. They want to form a union to make sure that safe patient care always comes before the profits of corporate executives.
As is to be expected, the administration is pushing back hard. Somehow, it seems like they don’t want to have to listen to the collective voices of nurses and have been engaging in a 24/7 union-busting campaign – even taking RNs away from patient care on the floors to attend a captive-audience meeting with highly paid anti-union consultants.
Let Beaumont RNs know that MNA nurses from around the state have their backs.
Rural areas across the country are facing the devastating impacts of the loss of OB departments, among other services, in their communities.
Michigan Nurses Take to Capitol for
Safe Patient Care
MNA Nurses recently headed to the State Capitol in Lansing to advocate for MNA’s Safe Patient Care Act. This bipartisan package of bills would require safe RN-to-patient ratios, limits on mandatory overtime, and hospital transparency. Members enjoyed training, a legislative panel, lunch on the Capitol lawn and visits with their legislators. The next step for the bills is to get a committee hearing.
Can you take a minute to email the Chair of the committee to urge him to hold a hearing?
