RNs Denounce Sham Election in Nine Ohio Hospitals, Hospital Chain Seeks to Impose Hand-Picked Union
Date:3/10/2008

OAKLAND, Calif., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The nation's largest organization of registered nurses today denounced what it called undemocratic sham union elections scheduled this week at nine hospitals in Cincinnati, Springfield, and Lima.

The hospitals are part of the Catholic Healthcare Partners chain which petitioned for a federal labor board election following a secret deal with the Service Employees International Union that would impose SEIU as the company's hand-picked union for 8,000 RNs and other hospital employees.

In a statement today, the National Nurses Organizing Committee/California Nurses Association blasted the deal "for compromising the democratic rights of the nurses and other employees and even endangering public safety standards in the hospitals." NNOC/CNA has 80,000 members in all 50 states, including Ohio.

Other national nurses organizations are also criticizing the vote, said NNOC/CNA, including the New York State Nurses Association.

Stern's model -- a distortion of the democratic role of unionism

"The labor movement should unify in protecting the sanctity of democratic unionism and stop the top down deals that [SEIU President Andrew] Stern cuts across this country and around the world at the expense of workers," said NNOC/CNA Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro.

Ohio "is a microcosm of the direction SEIU has taken since Stern led his union out of the real labor movement, the AFL-CIO -- letting an employer force his union on RNs and other hospital employees without the involvement of a single worker," DeMoro said.

"Stern and the CEO of the Catholic system do not have the right to determine the fate of a profession that is primarily women. The arrogance of that stance is disgraceful." DeMoro called on the labor movement to "stop this distortion of everything the labor movement should stand for and represent."

'Disdain of the rights and interests of the RNs and other employees'
