Nurses working for the UW Hospitals and Clinics met with the CEO of the hospital last Thursday and presented more than 1500 nurses signed union authorization cards. The nurses asked the UW to voluntarily recognize the Service Employees Union- Health Care Wisconsin as the bargaining agent. The UW reacted by claiming that they could not do so because of ACT 10 and calling into the question the validity of the signatures.
Labor Radio spoke with Kelly O’ Connor a UW Health pediatric nurses about the status of the organizing drive, accomplishments so far and next steps.
