   Altoona Mirror (Newspaper) - October 5, 2000, Altoona, Pennsylvania                                Altuuna Ifltrrar Business people Walt Frank 946-7467 Business trends Craig Williams 946-7460 business THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2000 Union official: Unionization vote will be filed for nurses Bv WILLIAM KIBLER StaffWriter The union trying to organize registered nurses at Altoona Hospital wUl file for a unioniza- tion vote eventually, a union offi- cial said Wednesday. "There isn't any said Alf Nelson, director of Healthcare PSEA, an arm of the state teacher's association. "The only question is when." The union has authorization cards from at least 30 percent of the 600 RNs, enough for a union- ization vote through the National Labor Relations Board, Nelson said. But Nelson is waiting for at least 50 percent to help ensure tile union will get the simple majority needed in a vote, he has said. The nurses want less mandato- ry overtime and less shifting among departments for less stress, better patient care and more time at home, they said. Those are the main issues that led to a recently resolved strike of 750 service, technical and clerical workers at Altoona. The hospital has enough money to comply with union demands, according to Nelson. "Altoona is in exceptionally sound financial said Nelson, whose union has com- piled a preliminary financial report on the hospital. "They've got beaucoup bucks." Nelson wouldn't say exactly how many authorization cards the Altoona RNs have signed yet but said the number is growing. The hospital isn't commenting until the union takes formal action, spokesman Rick Reeves said. Nurses are unionizing because they want a voice, said Beth Rogers, a pro-union nurse at Lee Hospital in Johnstown, which the union also is trying to organize. "They will listen to a thousand nurses more than five or said nurse Jacquie Nedimyer, one of the leaders at Altoona. Hospitals treat nurses like num- bers, forcing them to pile up the hours and shifting them about without enough regard for patient safety, said Sue Flowers, PSEA president at Indiana, Pa. Hospital where nurses organized 15 months ago but still haven't signed a contract. Hospitals try to scare employ- ees away from unionizing by warning them that they could jeopardize rapport with manage- ment and management's capacity for helping them, the nurses said. But nurses have worked under a paternalistic system for too long, Rogers said. "I can make my decisions for she said. Nurses are beginning to orga- nize across the state and nation, like teachers did 30 years ago, said Nelson, who was a teacher then, making per year. Half of his colleagues qualified for food stamps, he said. In about five years, during the early 1970s, though, unionization swept the state and now every school dis- trict is organized, he said. About 15 percent of the plus RNs in Pennsylvania have organized so far, he estimated. The union does a thorough financial study of hospitals it organizes and tailors demands accordingly, Nelson said. "We want them to he said. Mirror staff writer William Kibler can be reached at 949-7038.

Milk board considers temporary increase Groups are requesting a 2Ocent rise in current premium rate of per hundred pounds. HARRISBURG (AP) A state board is considering a plan to increase temporarily the premium that farmers receive on milk used for drinking, a move that could translate to a penny-increase per gallon at the grocery store. The Milk Marketing Board con- ducted a hearing Wednesday on the proposal by Dairylea Cooperative Inc. and Dairy Farmers of America's Northeast Council. The groups want a 20-cent increase to the current premium rate of per hundred pounds of milk that is produced, processed and sold in the state. The groups said an increase is necessary because other states are offering Pennsylvania dairy farm- ers a premium of up to per hundredweight. Without an increase, milk supplies in the state will dwindle, their petition for relief said. A hundred pounds of milk equals 11.6 gallons. The three-member board is expected to vote on the proposal in the next few days. If approved, the hike would be in effect for only November and December. That's because the current premium of per hundredweight is sched- uled to expire Dec. 31. Earlier this year, the board approved a 25-cent increase to the dairy premium to help offset rising diesel fuel prices. That temporary increase also is due to expire at the end of the year. Pennsylvania's Milk Marketing Board, one of a few nationwide that sets minimum wholesale and retail prices for milk, regulates the state's dairy industry. Critics said the board is counter to a free-market system, but farmers and milk processors said they rely on it to keep the state's billion indus- try stable. j.
