MORE ROCK CHALK DEETS ON THE KU MED CONTRACT FIGHT FOR NURSES!!!
The Kansas City Kansan offers an insightful glimpse on recent contract negotiations @ KU Med.
KU Hospital nurses, supporters rally to ‘illuminate’ contract concerns
"At issue is a management proposal that would cover the approximately 1,400 members of the Kansas University Nurses Association (KUNA).
