Unionization of Workers in the United States in Healthcare

by findsteps


One of the main instruments of the job and workforce sector is unionisation. These unions are mainly intended to defend their interests as workers and to ensure that, under the basic legal mandates, they receive the necessary wages. Unionization is not a common trend or practise in the healthcare sector because of the perceived risk that unions and collective bargaining arrangements can bring to the delivery of health care services (Patterson, 2010).  Recently, however, measures have been seen to improve the unionisation of health care workers. This paper will analyse why this phenomenon is unfolding; the causes of this phenomenon will be explored and what can be done to prevent such unionisation.
