January 2008

Earning attention from TV, radio and newspaper reporters, the nurses at Parkview who want to form a union are making their voices heard.

As supporters cheered, NICU nurse Deirdre Kirkwood told her story at a January 18 news conference: "I want a union at Parkview. I want a union because I love Parkview, and I want to make it better," said Kirkwood, who was unfairly fired by Parkview administrators.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise covered the story of the nurses calling for a free and fair union election, as did the Inland Empire Weekly newspaper and the local National Public Radio station, KPCC.
