Nurses at CHS Hospital in New Jersey Approve Union

Nurses at Memorial Hospital of Salem County in Swedesboro, N.J., have approved unionization, according to news release by the Health Professionals and Allied Employees, New Jersey's largest union and the one that will represent Salem County nurses.

Community Health Systems, the parent company of MHSC, originally objected to the election, claiming that a substantial number of RNs were supervisors and ineligible to vote. The National Labor Relations Board, however, ruled in favor of HPAE, allowing the vote to move forward.

CHS isn't the only hospital operator facing nurse unionization efforts. In recent months, HCA has seen nurses at six of its hospitals in Florida vote to unionize.
