Nurses File NLRB Complaints Against Bozeman Deaconess in Montana

Nurses from Bozeman (Mont.) Deaconess Hospital have filed three complaints with the National Labor Relations Board against their employer, claiming the hospital engaged in unfair labor practices after their contracts expired last year, according to a Bozeman Daily Chronicle report.

The complaints allege that hospital management denied nurses' requests to have a Montana Nurses Association representative at meetings with their supervisors, prohibited employees from collective action and refused to recognize the union as a bargaining agent, according to the report. An investigation into the complaints is under way.

MNA and the hospital have been negotiating a new contract for approximately 240 nurses since October, according to the report.

In a statement, the hospital said "negotiations are still under way" and it is still "working diligently to negotiate an acceptable agreement for all parties," according to the report.
