DES MOINES - (IDPA) -The Iowa public employment relations board, which was created under the new collective bargaining law for public employes, has received its first formal complaint.
It was filed against the Clarinda municipal hospital by a local nurses’ association, comprised of 25 full and parttime registered nurses.
The Clarinda municipal hospital nurses’ association contends the ■ hospital has failed to negotiate a contract in “good faith” which, they say, is in violation of the new collective bargaining law.
Under the act the three member public relations board may conduct an investigation and hold a hearing into the charges.
The nurses’ association, in a formal statement filed with the board, reported contract negotiations with the nurses and the hospital’s board of trustee's broke down on Oct 2 when the hospital made a “take-it-or-leave it” offer which was rejected by the nurse's.
The nurses’ association, which claims to represent HK) percent of all registered nurses employed at the Clarinda municipal hospital, said the hospital board informed them ‘‘there would be no further negotiation and that they would not submit to arbitration.”
At various times during the negotiations, according to the nurse's, the hospital board said there would be' no salary increase's for the registered nurses until a e'ontract was agrmi upon. Other employes at the hospital, according to the nurses, received raises ranging from 5 to 15 events commencing on June IO of this ye*ar.
The Clarinda association, through its attorney, claims the hospital board’s actions are de*signe*d to ‘‘restrain or coerce” the nurses in ther rights granted by the collective bargaining act.
Furthermore, the nurses claim the action elf the hospital is discriminatory against the nurses *‘be*cause they have formc*d, joint'd or chosen to be represented by the employee orgainzation.”
The association is challenging the ceinstitutionality of the “impasse procedure” feature of the collective bargaining act on the grounds that it deprives public employees of due process and is “without rational basis.”
The association contends the hospital board had agreed to negotiate prior to July, 1974, when certain portions of the collective bargaining law became effective.
The law stipulates, however, that the provisions of the act relative to the “duty to bargain” do not become effective until July I, 1975.
Money Back at Ohio Hospital
FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) -Blanchard Valley hospital has started an experimental program guaranteeing hospital services. Dissatisfied patients won’t have to pay their bills.
The guarantee covers services such as nursing care, food and housekeeping, but it does not include the services of physicians and dentists or results of medical care.
Administrator William Rust* said that patient complaints will be investigated by a panel of administrative staff members to make sure they
are justified and to determine where improvements are needed.
Ile said the guarantee program is designed to give patients some assurance upon entering the hospital and possibly “help the patient gel well a little bit faster.”
The hospital has 500 employes and admits about IO.INK) patients a year.
“We have a lot of confidence and faith in our people,” Ruse said. “If we didn’t feel we give good care to begin with we wouldn't have adopted a program like this.”

DES MOINES (AP)- Atty Gen. Richard Turner has asked the Polk county district court for an injunction to prohibiting an Arizona land firm from selling gold and prom-isory notes in Iowa.
Turner asked the court to stop Western Land Sales Co. of Scottsdale. Ariz. from using sales techniques that allegedly violate the state’s consumer fraud law.
The attorney general also asked that money collected from Iowans through such practices be returned.
The petition charges the land company sold Iowans
promissory notes representing “safe investments" when they were actually “high risk.”
It said the notes were fraudulantly represented as being secured by valid first mortgages on improved lots with dwellings in Arizona and that the notes would pay IO percent to 12 percent interest.
ON THIS DATE in 1952, the United States exploded the first hydrogen bomb, at Eniwetok Atoll in the Marshall Islands.
