Press releases

Registered nurses and technicians at Down East Community Hospital in Machias, Maine, will begin their two-day strike on Tuesday, April 30, to protest the administration’s refusal to address RNs’ and techs’ concerns about recruitment, retention, and safe staffing.
Nearly 100 union nurses from across the U.S. protested outside the April 27 Frist Family Gala at the Frist Art Museum in Nashville, Tenn., a black-tie event named for the family that founded and is a major shareholder in HCA, the largest for-profit health care company in the country.
Ascension nurses continue to call for urgent changes at the sprawling hospital chain after the National Council for Occupational Safety and Health named Ascension to its annual “Dirty Dozen” list of employers who put workers and communities at risk due to unsafe practices.
Nurses in El Paso, Texas, will hold a rally Thursday, April 25, at Las Palmas Medical Center as they begin negotiations on a new union contract with HCA, the facility’s owner. Nurses from both Las Palmas and Del Sol medical centers will attend and speak at the rally, and they say their key priorities for their new contract are intended to improve patient care and working conditions at their facility.

Organize with National Nurses Organizing Committee to improve workplace standards through collective bargaining, reform national health care legislation, and make a difference for you and your patients.
