There are a few loud nurses who are trying to force this new union upon the rest of the RNs working at Jackson. Some of the tactics that have been used by these organizers have caused me not only to question their professionalism but also their motivations. There have been instances of coercion, misrepresentation, and verbal abuse since this campaign began, and I fear that it will only get worse as the election draws nearer.
I'm thankful that the Florida Nurses Association is continuing to represent the RNs at Jackson in a professional manner at the same time they are fighting this hostile takeover attempt. The difference between a collective-bargaining unit that is trying to maintain professional standards and a trade union that is only out to make money for itself is becoming more apparent with each passing day.
