National Nurses United

EMMC's staff nurses are represented by the Maine State Nurses/National Nurses United/National Nurses Organization Committee, the largest nurses union in the United States. The union represents 185,000 nurses across the United States, and in the past, one of the tactics the union has used to its concerns about patient safety is to hold one-day strikes at hospitals across the country.

We encourage you to educate yourself on the local effects of a national agenda. We're also here to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Contact us today.
