Temple nurses say offer includes gag clause

Philadelphia Inquirer, November 2, 2009

A nursing union locked in contentious contract negotiations says Philadelphia-based Temple University Hospital is trying to infringe on the free-speech rights of the union and its members. The Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals, which represents 1,500 nurses at Temple, said it had filed a complaint with the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board claiming the hospital was demanding that a gag clause limiting public criticism of Temple or its managers be included in the new contract.
