Labor Day Reflections: Building Power, Member by Member

This year Labor Day coincides with the 40th anniversary of HPAE. In 1974, Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center joined the labor movement when we formed our own independent union of nurses. It was a real struggle to get the hospital to recognize our union and bargain a first contract, and to understand that our demands for a voice, job security, and rights must be respected.
