Today, Townhall published an article by Senior Fellow Olivia Grady. The article, “Big Labor Union Bosses Target Hospitals” is about how labor union bosses have found their next victims, North Carolina Mission Hospital nurses:

“Big Labor in recent years has fought hard to unionize workers in the South, largely unsuccessfully. Just last year the United Auto Workers lost an election at Chattanooga’s Volkswagen plant, and in 2017, Boeing workers in South Carolina rejected unionization. However, the labor union bosses have not given up. They are desperate to unionize workers in right-to-work states for political reasons and use the workers’ dues to fund the political campaigns of Democrats.

In fact, the next big labor campaign has already begun. On March 6 the National Nurses Organizing Committee - North Carolina/National Nurses United filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board to represent registered nurses at Mission Hospital in Asheville, North Carolina.

While some politicians, including Senator Bernie Sanders, and others are supporting the unionization of these nurses, what is not being discussed is just how radical this union really is.

The union unsurprisingly endorsed Senator Bernie Sanders for President in 2016, but National Nurses United actually jumped to endorse Sanders back in August of 2015. Top recipients in 2016 also included Representative Pramila Jayapal, a member of the far-left Democratic “squad.” None of the campaign donations in 2016 were given to Republicans, and none were given to North Carolina representatives.

In 2019, the union again was one of the first unions to endorse Senator Bernie Sanders. In fact, many unions have only recently started endorsing Democratic candidates for president.”
