Pennsylvania Senate approves bill limiting forced overtime for nurses

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, October 10, 2008
For years, healthcare unions have been trying to eliminate, or at least limit, mandatory overtime for nurses and other workers in Pennsylvania hospitals and nursing homes. And now under a bill approved unanimously by the Pennsylvania Senate, they made some significant progress. House Bill 834, introduced by Rep. Dan Surra, D-Elk, prohibits a healthcare facility from requiring nurses and other healthcare employees "to work in excess of agreed to, predetermined and regularly scheduled daily work shifts."
