Every month in NUHW Pulse, you’ll find stories and videos about NUHW, its members, its work, and its impact on the healthcare industry and the labor movement. We report on the latest developments in our workplaces, from election victories to bargaining updates, and we report on the progress of workers hoping to join our union. In addition, NUHW Pulse gathers and updates all the material we’ve posted to our website over the previous few weeks, so if you’ve missed something, this is a great chance to catch up.
