TRUMAN MED CENTER WORKERS CHARGE MANAGEMENT WITH UNION BUSTING!!!
Our blog community BROKE NEWS OF THIS KANSAS CITY LABOR DISPUTE FIRST and now here's important following in the ongoing fight . . .
KC Biz Journal: Truman Medical Center techs, lab workers file unfair labor practice charge
Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Healthcare Missouri, the group representing the workers, alleges that Truman's "management is escalating their harassment and intimidation of workers as they engage in their federally protected right to organize a union."
"After a worker engaged in protected concerted activities, discipline was placed in her record as a result of her participation in and speaking to the media regarding her protected concerted activities," according to the charge filed with the National Labor Relations Board. "These actions were anti-union and intimidating to the workers in violation of their Section 7 and 8 rights."
Truman Medical responded with an email statement: "TMC works well with all unions on site. We do not stand in the way of unions. We DO believe that workers should be able to vote on whether they want a union, and fully believe in the process allowing for a secret ballot vote, ensuring our employees’ choices will remain private. TMC’s goal is always to provide excellent patient care and be an Employer of Choice, with attractive wages and benefits."
