Nurses' Group Seeks to Overturn Tenet Pact

May 06, 2003|Ronald D. White

The California Nurses Assn. said it filed unfair labor practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board to overturn a labor agreement by Santa Barbara-based hospital chain Tenet Healthcare Corp.

CNA alleges that Tenet unlawfully forged a pact with two other unions, the Service Employees International Union and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.

The nurses' group said this allows the rival unions to improperly hold uncontested representation elections at Tenet hospitals and grants them preferential treatment in meeting with hospital employees. Tenet declined to comment.
