MA nurses union airs ad that attacks hospital chief executives

The Boston Globe, June 24, 2014

The Massachusetts Nurses Association, a union with 23,000 members, said Monday that it is airing a TV ad that shows two hospital chief executives "clicking glasses of champagne on a beach in the Cayman Islands and enjoying a lavish taxpayer subsidized lifestyle." The Massachusetts Hospital Association, a hospital industry trade group, countered that the ad is "misleading and irresponsible. The ad campaign, which includes a radio component, is intended to urge legislators to pass the Hospital Profit Transparency and Fairness Act.
