Greater Cincinnati hospital workers to vote on unionizing
Cincinnati Enquirer, March 4, 2008
More than 4,200 nurses, support staff, maintenance workers and clerical employees at the five Mercy Health Partners hospitals in Greater Cincinnati will vote on whether to unionize. In a deal with the Service Employees International Union, Mercy and its parent company have agreed not to try to influence employee voting. If employees choose a union, they will start negotiating a contract. If they reject a union, the SEIU has agreed not to campaign at Mercy hospitals for three years.
