Nurses at Sutter’s Modesto hospital vote “no” to unionization
Sacramento Business Journal

Registered nurses at a Modesto hospital affiliated with Sutter Health want to remain non-union, according to preliminary results from a vote last week. With a 92 percent turnout, 352 nurses voted for representation by the California Nurses Association, but 462 voted to remain union-free, the hospital reported late Friday. That’s a ‘No’ vote of 57 percent to 43 percent in favor of the union. Voting took place June 26 and 27. The National Labor Relations Board usually certifies election results in a week, unless a party files objections.
