Act now to protect unionizing nurses!
Just hours after nurses at The George Washington University Hospital (GWUH) filed an election petition with the National Labor Relations Board to unionize on March 15, hospital leadership “unlawfully suspended registered nurse Angelo Estrellas, who has faithfully cared for the patients of GWUH for over 10 years, due his alleged involvement in the union organizing campaign,” reports DC Nurses Association (DCNA). “This action by management is a violation of the National Labor Relations Act, and a blatant effort to disrupt the union organizing campaign. We demand that management immediately rescind any disciplinary action against Angelo and allow him to resume his duties as a highly respected nurse at GWUH.” There are some 750 RNs at GWU Hospital, which is owned and operated by Universal Health Services, the 6th largest for-profit health care company in the US.
