Tyner said one new side to the event this year was the focus on Saint Francis Hospital where SEIU Local 1199 has been trying to organize.</p><p>“We’re trying to make sure that there’s democracy in the workplace," Tyner said.&nbsp; "If the workers at St. Francis Hospital want a union, and most of them have signed cards saying they do want, they should be able to have one.”</p> Tue, 03 Sep 2013 12:43:12 +0000 Hank Gross 72741 at http://wamc.org “Unions Coming Back” Was Labor Day Rally Outlook
