‘No quick answer’ to union-Sutter fight in Modesto
Sacramento Business Journal

It’s going to be a while before an election fight between the California Nurses Association and management at Sutter Health’s Memorial Medical Center in Modesto is resolved.

The union filed formal objections with the National Labor Relations Board on Tuesday, alleging the union election last month was “fatally compromised” and results should be tossed.

Preliminary results show registered nurses voted against the union by a margin of 57 to 43 percent — but the union alleges hospital managers harassed nurses to pressure them to vote against unionization.
