We are the registered nurses of Framingham Union Hospital. We have formed a union and are voting to join the Massachusetts Nurses Association to ensure we can:
- Provide quality safe patient care.
- Promote a safe and healthy working environment.
- Revive and preserve a sense of pride, morale and respect in our community hospital.
- Feel valued, and treated with respect as a profession and satisfaction in our work.
On September 6, a group of nurses from different units, supported by and representing their colleagues, met for a strategy and planning session. Together we made a decision to file for our election on Tuesday September 12, 2023. We came up with a campaign plan to win on election day.
Every nurse at Framingham Union can contribute to growing our union, winning our election, and getting a strong contract that centers safe patient care and respect for nurses.

Moving Toward a Union Election
On Sept. 13, 2023, Framingham Union owner Tenet Healthcare gathered Framingham Union Managers together to train them on how to run an anti-union (unionbusting) campaign. The anti-union campaign is designed to confuse, stoke fear, and pit nurses against one another. They underestimate how strong we are when we stand together.
