    Question Is there a Union for Nursing in Florida?

    Hi,

    New here and was wondering if there was a Union for Nursing in Florida? When I have tried to go on-line I seem to be getting a lot of talk but not an actual site...?

    I saw your post about no one answering your questions and felt bad so I thought I would try to help!

    The union in California is called the California Nurses Association so I googled Florida Nurses Association and got a direct link to the Florida Union.

    http://www.floridanurse.org/

    Hope this helps.

    Peace and Namaste

    I just did a "Google" on the subject and I came up with this:

    Nurse Alliance Of Florida

    The biggest union hospital is Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami.

    I was just gonna say the same thing... St. Pete Gen. Hospital, where I work, is now union with a large majority having voted it through a few months back.

    I think that SEIU is the largest healthcare union in the USA now. But then that could be just something I heard somewhere. I don't know how they define "largest."

    To answer Cammie's question about definition of "largest union": at SEIU, we define it with numbers: 1.8 million employees represented, of which 1 million work in healthcare, including 84,000 Registered Nurses.
    St. Pete General is one of the 6 hospitals across Florida where employees voted to be unionized last October and November, and all are currently in contract negotiations.
    For our patients and our profession, we are making headway in all areas: our individual hospitals, our legislative districts and the Capitol.
