MIDDLEBURY — Porter Medical Center’s combined total of around 130 nurses could vote as soon as next month on whether to form a union.
“I am confident it has a good chance,” Porter Hospital RN Alice Leo, one of the union organizers, said on Monday. “Nurses are feeling good about this, that it is the right thing to do.”
Leo cited staffing concerns as the motivating factor behind the union drive. She said many nurses are concerned that some units are shorthanded.
