Thread: Opinion on Strike Nursing

    I know nursing is tough, but it is tough in other fields to. No offense but it sounds like you have a bit of negative attitude. I did not see one positive thing in your list. It is a shame. You should get out of nursing before your attitude hurts some patient.

    you know as much as nursing sucks at times I really like my job, as a matter of fact I could say I love it and have great co-workers. I worked in a union factory for 9 years before nursing and that really sucked big time all the time. Even bad days nursing are still better the a good factory day.

    Is it possible that 'scab' Nurses are brought in as travel nurses and have no idea they are going into a scab situation until they are on sight?

    I doubt that happens often..Usually these nurses are housed in a hotel/motel, work 6/7 days a week 12's and are bused to the hospital...All that would make me say..HUH?????

    When I lived in Honolulu, Hawaii the nurses there whould nurses strike. I remember I had a family member in ICU (before I became a nurse) and almost all the nurses were from Ca. I sence there were a few scabs in the group.

    It's the only leverage nurses have when all attempts at an equitable negotiation have failed. Back in the 70's, Seattle area nurses went on strike - for about a year. But, because of that, wages were increased dramatically. Today, all nurses in Seattle area hospitals are organized.

    Nurses who rely soley upon the "good will" of management are apt to lose.

    Many nurses have made more money in the last decade. Irregardless of strikes.. And many nurses have lost their jobs to strikes..

    Many nurses have not lost their jobs to strikes.

    Strikes are not commonplace. Nor would we want them to be. They are, as I stated before, "the only leverage nurses have when all attempts at an equitable negotiation have failed."
