It turns out the California Nurses Association (CNA) may have been exaggerating slightly when it accused members of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) of stalking and harassment.
The two unions are engaged in competing efforts to represent Ohio nurses. The organizing campaigns have turned increasingly nasty over the past three years.
A California Superior Court dismissed a restraining order against SEIU staff members after viewing video footage that showed what the CNA called “5 male staffers harassing CNA board members.” The video actually showed a 54-year-old registered nurse and a 61-year-old respiratory therapist going door-to-door to try to speak to CNA .
“I’m a mom and a grandmom and I’ve spent my life caring for patients,” said Michaela Silver, the respiratory therapist captured in the video. She works for Catholic Healthcare Partners in Springfield. “The last thing I thought anyone would ever call me is intimidating or scary.”
The fight between the SEIU and the CNA to unionize Ohio’s nurses seems far from over, however. The SEIU accuses the CNA of engaging in union-busting activities in Catholic hospitals throughout Ohio.
