McKnight's Online Expo to probe union issues in nursing homes
It could be an excellent time to give a little more consideration to unions and your facility. The Service Employees Union recently said it was sprouting a new healthcare offshoot. And this week, congressmen introduced a bill that would make it easier for unions to organize at facilities.To learn more about the labor situation and how it could affect you, register for the free March 14 McKnight's Online Expo session on it.
