Nurse staffing shortages come to Michigan hospitals – with a twist

Nurse staffing shortages come to Michigan hospitals – with a twist

By Mark Gruenberg PAI Staff Writer

MT. CLEMENS, Mich. (PAI)—If you’re a registered nurse and your union contract with two hospitals includes safe-staffing ratios, what do you do if the hospitals break those pact provisions?

The answer from Office and Professional Employees Local 40, which represents 1,000 nurses at two hospitals in the upscale Detroit suburb of Mount Clemens, Mich., is you hammer at the issue in bargaining sessions, file labor law-breaking complaints with the National Labor Relations Board – and raise hell in public.

Which is what the local did, convening a Town Hall meeting in Mount Clemens on the evening of April 19 to tell the community what’s going on, and take questions, Local President Jeff Morawski said in a pre-meeting telephone interview.

Safe staffing is a nationwide problem, as insurers lean on hospitals to cut costs by cutting down the number of nurses available per shift. The firms’ tactic is to deny reimbursements for claims, arguing they’re paying too much for too many people. One result is doctors’ short visits with patients.

Millennials, white-collar workers bringing new life to unions

The ranks of organized labor have been shrinking for decades, and an upcoming Supreme Court decision involving the ability of public-sector unions to collect fees from nonmembers is expected to further sap the movement of much-needed funds.

Don't pass massive tax cuts for the wealthy on the backs of working people

Don't pass massive tax cuts for the wealthy on the backs of working people

Republicans in Congress have proposed a tax plan that favors corporations and the top 1% over working people. Millions of working families would pay more in taxes while Wall Street would make out like bandits. We cannot afford for this bill to become law.

Tax Breaks for Outsourcing Makes Plan a Job Killer.
This plan reduces the tax rate on offshore profits to zero, giving corporations even more incentive to move American jobs offshore. If it passes, working people could see their jobs sent overseas—and they will have to pay more in taxes.

Top 5 reasons the GOP tax plan is bad deal for women
