What say you?
As Peter Rachleff said in his guest post on the MNA blog about the 1934 Teamsters strike, grassroots pressure brings resources to the bargaining table.
You spoke loud and clear to MNA with your letters of resignation and to your patients saying “no fear, we’ll be here” by your phone calls to your hospitals telling them you would work during the strike. Your actions sent MNA and TCH back to the bargaining table. Your actions turned the tide from an inevitable strike to this contract ratification.
You were the grassroots Peter Rachleff spoke of. He didn’t know that at the time. None of us did. “anurse” gave you the opportunity to find your voice. And you used it. And thank God for the patients and their families that you did.
I salute you.
