Saint Mary's Reno RNs Choose CNA/NNOC in Landslide 64 Percent Vote for 500 RNs
Date:12/7/2007

Nevada Breakthrough for Fastest Growing Union

RENO, Nev., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Registered nurses at Saint Mary's Regional Medical Center in Reno Thursday night voted by over 64 percent to join the nation's fastest growing union, the California Nurses Association/ National Nurses Organizing Committee (CNA/NNOC).

Saint Mary's RNs will hold a press conference today on the election results.

It was the first victory for CNA/NNOC in Nevada -- but, said CNA/NNOC Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro, "it will be the harbinger of more victories to come in the state where there is a booming interest in CNA/NNOC achievements."

The final count was 252 to 141 in the secret ballot election supervised by the National Labor Relations Board. CNA/NNOC will represent 500 RNs at the hospital.

With the Saint Mary's win, CNA/NNOC has now grown by more than 350 percent in the past decade, and won elections for 24,500 RNs at 72 hospitals since 2001.

Nevada becomes the fourth state, joining California, Illinois, and Maine, where CNA/NNOC represents RNs in collective bargaining. Overall, CNA/NNOC has more than 75,000 members in all 50 states.

"We are rolling across the nation with a patient advocacy agenda that is a beacon to nurses from coast to coast," said DeMoro Thursday night. "We expect the Nevada nurses to be a model for nurses in other states who will very soon also be voting for representation by CNA/NNOC."

"For the nurses and patients at Saint Mary's, this is a monumental night, with a breakthrough that will make this a better hospital for patients and for the Reno community," said Malinda Markowitz, RN on behalf of the CNA/NNOC Council of Presidents.

"We are excited to welcome the Saint Mary's RNs into the CNA/NNOC fa
