BRING ON 1199: Unionization of the public mental health hospitals in NC would strike fear in the hearts of NC DHHS administrators

Nothing strkes fear like the word UNION as per hospital and government administrators.

The union 1199----which attempted to uonionize Atlanta hospitals in the 1980's-----did more to change working conditions, increase salaries, and accelerate patient care----than any other litany of excuse-making could ever do.

They should start w/ Cherry Hospital: ITS RIPE FOR THE PICKING.

That would be fantastic. I think the mental hospitals and developmental centers would be the perfect place. It's about time that they get some support as a group.
