Nurses are Unionizing at UMC & They Need Your Help

CALL NOW: 504-636-8950

Nurses at University Medical Center (UMC) in New Orleans are fighting to stop the dangerous trend of hospital management’s understaffing and failure to provide safe patient care and working conditions. Nurses have notified management of our intentions to form a union to advocate for our patients, but management has responded by trying to deny our right to do so.

Please call our hotline now to be connected to the UMC Board of Directors and executive officers. Please introduce yourself as a member of the community and urge them to stop their union busting tactics and recognize UMC nurses’ right to have a voice in the care we provide to our community. 

You can use the script below, and please feel free to add your personal experience.
