Texas hospital managers meet with lawyers over unions
Dallas Morning News, June 13, 2008
Dallas-area hospital managers, worried about the possibility of nurses unions, talked with labor lawyers about how to avoid their coming. The California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee began contract negotiations with a Tenet Healthcare Corp. hospital in Houston. A second Tenet hospital in Houston is also gearing up for a vote to authorize such a union.
Dallas is next, predicted the Dallas law firm Littler Mendelson PC, which sponsored a seminar titled, "The Unions are Coming! The Unions are Coming!"
