The following message was forwarded to us:
PLEASE CALL DLP
So, everything going on with the hospital lately has just made me sick inside!! I finally couldn’t take it anymore and I knew I had to contact someone, ANYONE, from DLP and tell them directly how I felt about what was happening. I didn’t want to send an email or write a letter than can easily be disregarded I wanted to speak to a real person. I found the Ethics and Compliance Hotline for DLP and called – the lady I spoke to actually sounded shocked herself when I told her what was happening!! They are there 24/7 and anyone can call and file a formal complaint that is forwarded to corporate; the more community members that call and continue to have their voices heard WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE the number is 1-877-508-LIFE.
SUPPORT THE MARQUETTE MNA NURSES
COMMUNITY INFORMATIONAL PICKET
Please come out in a community show of support
Sunday October 8th, Noon to 4pm
College Ave near the parking ramp.
At 7am today our local Marquette nurses were denied access to return to their jobs and their patients. Our community needs to let Duke LifePoint know they are accountable to the entire community for their actions.
Support the Nurses
USW Members, Family and Friends
Come walk with the Nurses in Solidarity
Let’s show Duke LifePoint how we USW Members Support our Local Nurses
Currently the UPHS Nurses of the MNA Union are slated to strike Duke LifePoint on Thursday Oct. 5th and Friday Oct. 6th.
The Nurses have additional bargaining dates and mediation scheduled before Oct. 5th.
The Nurses have been in contract negotiations with Duke LifePoint since April 18. A two-month extension expired on July 28, and RNs have been working without a contract since. These Nurses have been dealing with unsafe staffing levels.
Now is the time for Duke LifePoint to do the right thing for patients – guarantee safe RN staffing levels and a hospital environment that will attract and retain nurses for years to come.
We will post additional information as it becomes available
Nurses are required by law to give the hospital 10 days’ notice before striking.
Nurses of the Duke LifePoint UPHS are Union members of the Michigan Nurses Association – MNA
We’re talking labor here. Nurses are the new miners. Stand with them! Forced 16 hour shifts is dangerous on many levels for all involved. For profit everything is not the correct way to go. Everything leads back to labor, EVERYTHING! In this system.
Our next Union meeting will be:
Monday June 12th
The next meeting is:
Monday, February 13th @ 4:00
