The Service Employees International Union (SEIU)and California Nurses Assn. announced that they are jointly organizing employees at large medical facilities across the country I guess they got together and said "Let's stop all this fussing and a feuding" and then had one big group hug. This sure seems like a good thing but is it? Many times I wish doctors would unionize in order to wield some power but a wise man once said, "With great power comes great responsibility". That man was, of course, Uncle Ben from the Spiderman movie. If this nurses' "super union" works for the betterment of patient care then I guess I am for it. An example would be to keep the ratio of patients to nurses down in the hospitals. When hospital nurses are overextended mistakes happen. But if the "super union" just pushes for more pay then this is a bad thing. Look at the UAW and how much money they got auto workers? That industry is almost as dead as, well, good old Uncle Ben.
