Veterans Health Administration unions decry management’s failure to involve them in COVID-19 preparations, call to work together

We health care workers in the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) system, deeply dismayed by the lack of preparations, planning, and communications so far in response to COVID-19, are calling on VHA management to work with us to ensure the nation’s VA health facilities can safely handle COVID-19. Together, our unions represent nearly 350,000 employees working within the VHA system.

Opinion: Keep veterans’ health care out of the profit-making business

Military veterans beware.

Nurses Stand in Solidarity with Congressional Women of Color

As a union that represents registered nurses who see the consequences of threats to the health and safety of our patients, National Nurses United (NNU) is alarmed and appalled at the rising tone of attacks on four inspiring women of color emanating from the White House and its supporters.
