Press releases

Registered nurses at UChicago Medicine will hold a strike vote on Tuesday, February 20, 2024, which would authorize the bargaining team to call a strike if management does not address staffing concerns which lead to patient safety issues.
Registered nurses at the newly unionized Northern Maine Medical Center in Fort Kent, Maine, were joined by members of the local community as they marched on management to demand the reinstatement of their co-worker Tiffani Daigle, RN.
Union nurses and technicians at Down East Community Hospital in Machias, Maine, will hold rallies on Friday, Jan. 26 and on Saturday, Jan. 27 to demand management address patient safety, chronic short staffing, and staff retention.
Nurses at the 40-bed facility say they voted to join their new union because it is critical that nurses have a say in decisions about patient care and about recruitment and retention of nurses, which leads to improved patient care.

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.
