Nurses Win in Houston

On the night of March 28, the National Nurses Organizing Committee made history in Houston. They won their union election and thus established the only nurses' union in Texas!

It took place at a Tenet's Hospital in Cypress Fairbanks, according to North Texas interim president Rossia Avery.

She expects to tell the entire story on KNON radio at 8 AM on Wednesday, April 2.



United Auto Workers Local 276 President, J.R. Flores, has agreed to host a "Rally for Health Care Reform" at his union hall at 2505 W.E. Robersts (formerly Sherman Street) in Grand Prairie at 1:30 PM on Tuesday, April 8. The event will follow an all-morning seminar involving UAW retirees from all over the state.

Health care reform is a major concern of all American unions, as they can no longer count on successful negotiations with employers for health care insurance coverage for their active and retired members. Health care is expected to be the number one election issue for the union movement. The AFL-CIO is calling for health care activities all through the month of April.

UAW 276 is the General Motors local. The union hall is close to the big factory in Arlington. The closest intersection is Great Southwest Parkway. Anyone who gets lost may call the union at (972) 647-1282. For advanced information on the activity, contact Jobs with Justice
