Nurse Talk Short | Unions Step Up and Evicting Dad?
National Nurses United, the nations largest nurses union just announced their affiliation with the National Union of Healthcare Workers. RN DeAnn McEwen, Co-President of the California Nurses Association, is here to talk about this latest step to protect patients, uphold standards, fight employer attacks, blast efforts to roll back patient ratios, and erode contract protections. McEwen says, “We work for better living conditions and human rights for everybody…not just for ourselves, and NUHW is a natural ally.”
