The Temple University Health System will have to collectively bargain with a larger group of nurses following a recent Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board (PLRB) ruling.
The system’s nurses association sought to include “pool nurses” in its collective-bargaining unit. It argued the pool nurses were being used so often, they were performing substantially the same work as nurses covered under the agreement.
The PLRB agreed that the only substantial difference between the two groups was that the pool nurses did not receive benefits. Apparently, that is about to change.
