The Washington State Nurses Association has filed an unfair labor practice charge against PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center on behalf of the 1,465 nurses the union represents at the Vancouver hospital.

The union filed the charge April 24, alleging PeaceHealth violated the National Labor Relations Act by interfering with employee rights and engaging in bad faith bargaining. A PeaceHealth official said the accusation lacks merit. The National Labor Relations Board will investigate the claim.

The union also said PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center has “disparaged the union and its members in communication and threatened employees who wear union T-shirts and insignia.”
