A vote could happen as soon as early next month to unionize employees at Saint Charles Medical Center. One federal labor official says it's the largest attempt he's seen in the last couple of years to unionize. The employees who want the union have started a website detailing their concerns. Those include seeing more jobs outsourced and having more of a say in hospital operations.  “Our feeling is that we don't need a third party to enter into the picture to talk to our caregivers.” I asked Katy Vitcovich about concerns workers are not being respected. “I know that's one person and I know this morning (Friday) I have had ten emails this morning saying the opposite.” The National Labor Relations Board will hold a hearing in Bend next Tuesday to determine which employees would be represented if the vote is successful. More than the 30% of employees have signed a petition asking for the union. More than half of the employees must vote for a union for it to be implemented.
