Boeson said the campaign started because of changes at the hospital, including high turnover rates, understaffing and budget cuts.

“Management took me off this area because they wanted to make sure I wasn’t in different areas of the hospital to speak with different nurses.”.

Once the union drive went public, Boeson said the hospital began mandating nurses attend one-hour information meetings with their hired labor relations consultants.

“Our nurses can and do speak for themselves and we think they do not need a union to speak for them.”.

Nurses at Johns Hopkins noted management has also retained union busting firms and consultants since the organizing drive went public.

The settlement mandated management post signs affirming workers’ rights to unionize and that management would not interfere or retaliate against nurses for doing so.

Nurses say they started organizing to form a union in response to safety problems that have plagued the hospital, chronic understaffing, and retaliation against nurses who spoke up. »

“In highly emotional, partisan political contests, such as the 2020 US Presidential election, voters may ‘remember’ entirely fabricated news stories,” says lead author Gillian Murphy of University College Cork.

The study is novel because it examines misinformation and false memories in relation to a real-world referendum, Murphy explains. »
