Have always been puzzled by organized labor’s demand for universal healthcare. Why would they want to inflict second-rate, rationed health care on their members.
Here’s one answer. Shared the following union news release with a friend who once involved in resisting an attempt to unionize a local hospital.
FRESNO, Calif., Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ — Healthcare workers from Community Medical Centers delivered a message to CEO Tim Joslin on Thursday: the union-busting tactics going on at the Fresno hospital facilities are putting the quality of treatment offered there at risk.
The workers instead urged Joslin to negotiate a free and fair election agreement with employees who are interested in forming a union. Workers could then make their decision free from harassment and intimidation, and patient care would not be jeopardized by management pulling caregivers from the hospital floor for meetings filled with anti-union propaganda.
More calumny follows, the typical tactics of a union-led corporate campaign. The demand for a neutrality agreement, in which the employer agrees not to represent one side of the issue, is the new approach: Demand surrender right off the bat.
Anyway, our friend comments:
All of this, of course, is part of the strategy they hope leads to government-run healthcare. Then the nursing unions can merge with the public employees unions (where that isn’t already the case), and nirvana will be achieved (I have a GS rating, government employee work rules, and a federal pension).
Which will improve health care?
