Hospitals and union elections

Hospitals and union elections

Health Care Manager 19(2): 8-12

This study examines union certification elections in hospitals from October 1994 to September 1997. Results indicate that union win rates were significantly higher in single-union elections and larger bargaining units. On the other hand, union win rates were significantly lower in church-related hospitals and hospitals that belonged to a health care system or had higher payroll costs. Unions also appeared to win elections at a higher rate in this period than in the past.
