Beaumont RNs: We have the LEGAL RIGHT to Organize
All Units. All Shifts. All Seniorities.
Let’s talk. Nurses are beginning to discuss our experiences at the hospital. We’re coming together to figure out ways we can have a voice in our workplace. That is why knowing our rights is so important.
Know Your Rights
- We have the right to talk about forming our union in non-patient care areas at non-patient care times (eg, in breakrooms, locker room, etc.)
- We have the right to join, form, or assist a union. We have the right to attend meetings about joining, forming or assisting a union.
- We have the right to discuss our wages, benefits, and other terms and conditions of our employment. (The administration wants us to keep quiet, but our power comes through sharing knowledge.)
- We have the right to take action with one or more co-workers to improve our working conditions.
Of course, everyone also has the right not to do any of these things! Learn more at NLRB.gov.
Any attempt to infringe on our rights to do any of the above actions is a violation of the National Labor Relations Act and is illegal.
