4 Nurses' Union Complaints Stick

The National Labor Relations Board has found merit in four complaints filed by a nurses’ union against five Orlando Health hospitals, the Orlando Business Journal reports. The National Nurses Organizing Committee complained in November that the hospitals were interfering with attempts to form a union in several ways.

The union withdrew some of its complaintslast month, the Business Journal reports, but the four that the court said could continue involved hospital officials asking employees about union activity, threatening reprisals and giving the impression that certain employees were under surveillance.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
