Second Las Vegas hospital severs ties with union

In the span of a month, two local hospitals have stopped negotiating with Service Employees International Union Local 1107.

The decisions, which the union’s president has vowed to fight, have left close to 1,000 registered nurses without organized representation.

Desert Springs Hospital withdrew its recognition of the union Sunday, hospital spokeswoman Gretchen Papez confirmed Monday. A majority of the hospital’s unionized registered nurses have signed cards stating they no longer wished to be represented by SEIU, according to a memo obtained by the Review-Journal.

“We have notified the union that all future RN bargaining sessions are cancelled,” the memo states. “Also, all union access rights to the Hospital under the expired RN collective bargaining agreement are terminated.”

1. The question that comes to mind is whether any of the nurses

were intimidated or coerced to sign the cards requesting the withdrawal of the union and whether those signatures are legitimate. Something smells fishy in Las Vegas.
