Hospital's nurses may vote again on union representation

The National Labor Relations Board has ruled that registered nurses at Harbor Hospital Center in southern Baltimore should be allowed to vote again on whether they want to be represented by Teamsters Local Union 311.

The Teamsters lost a January vote but appealed to the NLRB, accusing management of interfering with nurses' rights to organize. An NLRB hearing officer upheld the union's allegations of management misconduct, noting a speech by the hospital's president, L. Barney Johnson, in which he warned the hospital could be closed if nurses unionized.

Reached by telephone at home last night, Johnson said the hospital plans to appeal the NLRB ruling. He declined further comment.
