LABOR WINS A BIG ONE IN COURT

The Supreme Court has cleared the way for a drive to unionize health care workers. On Apr. 23, the court decided 9-0 that the National Labor Relations Board had the authority to set a rule estab-lishing eight distinct bargaining units for the hospitalindustry, such as one fornurses or one for technicians.Labor supports the NLRB rule because it's easier to organize employees with common goals and work issues. The American Hospital Assn., which sued the NLRB after it issued its rule in 1989, and other hospital groups argue that the rule would foment labor strife and increase costs.EDITED BY HARRIS COLLINGWOOD
