UAN Nurse Among Political Activists To Be Honored by AFL-CIO
Date:9/11/2009

Minnesota's Linda Hamilton Selected as Example of the Link between Political and Union Activism

SILVER SPRING, Md., Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- At its quadrennial convention starting Sept. 14, AFL-CIO will honor the work of UAN's Linda Hamilton, RN, and other union activists whose election season volunteer work helped make workers' voices heard.

Building on a lifetime of political activism that began when she was a teenager, Hamilton volunteered prior to the 2008 elections to promote labor candidates including Barack Obama, Al Franken, Keith Ellison and her own son, who ran for state representative. She also serves as a director on UAN's Executive Council and is an RN at the Children's Hospital and Clinics in Minneapolis, where she also cares for patients who require extended heart and lung bypass in the neonatal and pediatric ICU.

"UAN members are proud to have Linda represent us and staff nurses everywhere as an outstanding example of what union members can accomplish in the political arena," said UAN President Ann Converso, RN. "From her work on the UAN RN PAC Board to her local involvement in many elections and the presidential campaign, Linda shows us all why union work and civic activism go hand in hand."

Political and union work has been a priority for the Hamilton family. Her son, in his nomination speech, noted that he was active in promoting political and social issues from his stroller and thought it was perfectly normal to have their representative on the family's speed dial--at the number 4, because they stood "for us," he says.

The United American Nurses, AFL-CIO, represents nurses across the country in state nurses associations, collective bargaining programs and independent unions, uniting to work for change on issues important to RNs.
