    I worked at National Nurses United full-time (More than a year)


    For a nonprofit, the salaries seem good. Weighed out against the amount of hours and days they require their employees to work and often travel full-time, it's barely minimum wage. Their health insurance is good and they offer a pension.


    They are an abusive, enormously hypocritical employer. Period. They tout ideological ideas about workers' rights while treating their own employees like dirt. The culture of the organization is a cult of personality of the NON-RN leadership and a caste system. The NON-RN leadership hold themselves in much, much higher regard than the rank and file employees, particularly the organizers who are considered the lowest caste. Being an organizer at NNU is a miserable experience. If you are the type to question bad policies or tactics, watch out! They do not tolerate dissent in the ranks and these folks know how to manipulate labor law better than anyone. They will treat you unfairly and they will do it with the full support of the law. If you're the kind of person who is happy to go with the program, not ask questions of management, work 15 hour days, 6-7 days a week, go for it! They'll act like they're doing you a favor when they send you home for 2 days every 3 weeks while working indefinitely on an out-of-town assignment. They'll shift you around all over the country with absolutely no regard for your family situation or personal needs. They'll send you to dangerous areas like the border of Texas and Mexico and not care at all about your safety. If that sounds like a good life to you, by all means, go work for NNU! If you're the type who actually cares about increasing the amount of unionized RNs in this country, this isn't the place for you. More often than not, NNU raids units of already organized RNs, stealing members away from other unions. You see, it's a lot cheaper and easier to increase member numbers by convincing already organized workers to switch unions. But that doesn't do a thing to increase the overall density of unionized RNs in this country which would increase RNs power in general. It only increases NNU's dominance and the power of RNs' membership to NNU while, ironically, not increasing their power as an RN. There is a definitive argument to be made that NNU and most other labor unions that decertify (raid) other unions are the biggest offenders in holding back the growth of the labor movement. If you're considering a career in the labor movement, I suggest looking elsewhere. But I've yet to hear about a union that treated it's employees the same way they expect employers to treat their members. I've worked for several and know many people who have as well.

    Advice to Management

    There's nothing I could possibly say to these megalomaniacs that would resonate. They'll all have to retire or pass away before anything changes at NNU. Or perhaps RN members will eventually tire of the NON-RN leadership of this sad union and their abusive practices and take over. For the sake of the nursing profession and the wellbeing of RNs, one can only hope.
