RNs Charge Jackson Health System, Service Union Broke State Law in Harassment of Hospital Nurses
Date:12/15/2008

Yet JHS used security guards to tail and threaten arrest of NNOC/CNA staff, and prevent them with communicating with nurses - while routinely giving carte blanche to SEIU staff. SEIU participated in this campaign, which included harassment of RNs and NNOC/CNA by SEIU Local 1991 President and acting Executive Director Martha Baker, until recently a hospital nurse manager.

JHS RNs contacted NNOC/CNA several months ago seeking to change their affiliation in response to widespread alarm over poor nurse staffing and other eroding care conditions, and disgust with Local 1991's domination by hospital management.

In a related development, NNOC/CNA today also filed a petition to represent some 350 RNs at one JHS facility, Jackson North Medical Center in North Miami Beach. The former Tenet Healthcare facility was recently brought into JHS and SEIU 1991.

SEIU's cozy ties with hospital management and use of campaign contributions is consistent with a national pattern that has generated growing SEIU criticism around the nation. Among SEIU's recent controversies:

  • Links to the corruption scandal involving Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. SEIU is Blagojevich's top campaign contributor, with donations totaling over $1.8 million. Blagojevich helped SEIU by ordering the state to negotiate with SEIU to represent 49,000 in-home child care workers.

  • Corruption charges involving leaders of major SEIU locals in Los Angeles and Michigan. The president of SEIU's largest local was forced to resign after an expose by the Los Angeles Times found the local paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to firms owned by his wife and mother-in-law. Much of the money went to businesses suspended by the state tax board for failing to file tax returns and other public documents.
