NFL Players Association Stands With KU Hospital Nurses
Here's the most important passage . . .
In a letter to the hospital administrator dated March 12th, NFL Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith said, “You advertise that you are making sure that the players (our members) keep the “competitive edge.” Critical to that “edge” is the care that KUNA registered nurses provide to the players at The University of Kansas Hospital Training Complex.”
Mr. Smith went on, “I urge you to negotiate a fair and reasonable agreement with the Kansas University Nurses Association (KUNA) that provides them with compensation competitive with other hospitals in the region.”
And so, this collective bargaining bit of support is important not only because it offers more than a bit of solidarity but also because it fact checks popular adverts.
