Grab a Tray on MNA

The first very successful MNA day in the cafeteria was held on Friday, March 4, 2011 and several members came to eat and “talk union” with each other over lunch. Nurses were invited to come to discuss issues and share opinions about nursing issues and quality of patient care.

Unity is Forever/Solidarity is Forever

Many nurses have been wearing black scrubs on Thursdays to show unity and show our grief and concern over the loss of Safe Patient Care.

Grievance Success!!!

The Mercy nurses have settled grievances over the hospital’s refusal to allow them to maintain dependents on the family plan. Each nurse will receive a check in the amount of the settlement.


The next Labor/Management meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 23, 2011, please see a rep if you have any issues for the agenda.
