The issue of union representation at Saint Charles Health Systems will be the subject of a special public hearing in Bend this afternoon. The hearing will be conducted by the National Labor Relations Board: “Trying to determine which group of employees would be eligible to vote to chose whether to be represented or not.” After that, the NLRB's Rich Ahern says half of those workers will have to vote for union representation. That election is expected after the first of the year. Some of the workers say they want more respect and more of a say in how the hospital is run.
