Nurses in Suburban Philadelphia Hospital Vote to Join Union

On August 22 and 23, registered nurses at St. Mary Medical Center in Langhorne, Pa., voted to unionize.  The nurses will join the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Health Professionals, which represents about 9,000 nurses and healthcare professionals statewide, including hundreds at the slated-to-close Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia. Staffing has been a main concern of nurses who support unionization.
