Nurse Lobby Day 2011

As Legislators marked the half-way point in the 2011 general session, nearly 100 Local 1991 members, CIR doctors and  nurses from other unions, descended on Tallahassee to let our voices be heard about issues affecting our patients and profession.

After participating in educational sessions to learn about effective advocacy and the issues at play, our members fanned out around the capitol, discussing key issues with their Senators and Representatives. Topics discussed included proposed bills attacking collective bargaining, bills undermining the public sector pensions (particularly the FRS) and budgets in both houses which threaten severe cuts in education and healthcare.
