Our Union. Our Rights. Our Patients.

On the day of the upcoming ruling by the Supreme Court affecting public sector unions and workers, in the case of Janus v. AFSCME, the California Nurses Association/National Nurses United and public sector registered nurses will hold press conferences at medical facilities across California to discuss the impact of the decision.

NNU has warned that the decision by the pro-corporate majority on the Supreme Court may severely jeopardize the ability of nurses who work in public sector settings to advocate for safe patient care.

Press conferences will be held in Northern California in San Francisco and Sacramento, and in Southern California in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and San Diego (times and locations below).

Day of press conferences, all in front of the following hospitals at 12:00 noon:
