Teamsters look to organize workers at OSU Medical Center

The Teamsters Union is petitioning the Ohio Employment Relations Board to represent about 400 workers at the Ohio State University Medical Center.

The workers interested in unionizing include patient care associates, clerical workers and licensed practical nurses. Most OSU hospital workers, including nurses and service and trades employees are already represented by several bargaining units, including the CWA, the Communications Workers of America.

A Teamster's organizer says the workers must decide between the Teamsters and the CWA when the state employment relations board sets an election date.
