(46609) Uncle Sam, SPNN-UNAC, AFSCME nurses

An "Uncle Sam" doll sits on a table, its legs crossed. Behind is a sign which reads "Democracy in the workplace vote yes SPNN-UNAC" with a check mark in a box. A sticker on the doll's hat reads "Indecisive Management Is Bad Management.' Underneath the doll are papers with facts about nurses unions.

The more than 2,200 members of Sharp Professional Nurses Network (SPNN), part of the AFSCME affiliate United Nurses Associations of California/National Union of Hospital and Health Care Employees (UNAC/NUHHCE), organized in 1996. They succeeded in getting their first contract in 1998.
