Resolution 18-011R

After spending time with nurses at their National Nurses United event and learning more about the working conditions at John Hopkins, I introduced a Resolution 18-011R. Johns Hopkins Hospital is a world-class medical institution that serves people from across Baltimore as well as from across the world. Many Registered Nurses work at Hopkins for that reason and there is no reason why they do not deserve a world-class working environment as well.
The compassion and service RN’s give their patients are undermined by the poor working conditions, unsafe patient to nurse ratio, poor compensation and the frequent turnovers on the nursing staff.
I believe Johns Hopkins should not use anti-union consultants and tactics to intimidate and prevent RN’s from organizing. This resolution encourages the hospital to adopt a policy of neutrality and non-interference relating to the ongoing unionization efforts of Registered Nurses.
