For the registered nurses at Mission Hospital in North Carolina, “Organize the South” is more than just a motto. It’s exactly what they’ve been doing. And the North Carolina labor movement is thanking them for it.
In the first private sector hospital union election win in North Carolina — the largest at any non-union hospital in the South since 1975 — RNs at Mission Hospital voted by a stunning 70 percent to join the nation’s largest RN union to secure a powerful voice for improved care and workplace safety.
