Many service employees at St. Charles are frustrated at the lack of movement on reaching a contract over the last year.  Some workers filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board to help a decertification vote to remove the union. These workers voted to unionize last year, but during the last year have been unable to reach a contract agreement with the hospital. Mel James is a nursing assistant at St. Charles. He's confident the decertification vote will go down to defeat, just as nurses at Pioneer Memorial Hospital in Prineville rejected removing their union. “I think you can draw parallels between the two. As far as a decertification vote, I’m confident the vote will fail and then like in Prineville, I hope we will see some movement on a contract like the ONA [Oregon Nurses Association] went through in Prineville. I think that's fair to say.” To go forward, 30% of union employees must want to hold a decertification vote.
