New York nurses vote to leave American Nurses Association

Members of the New York State Nurses Association voted to leave the American Nurses Association, which had suspended the state organization last December.

The nurses, at their biennial conference Thursday, voted to leave the ANA, which one spokeswoman said was "moving backward."

Last May, a spokeswoman for the ANA said the state association had been suspended for one year back in December for violating the national's bylaws and "engaging in dual unionism," basically assisting a rival union in taking over as the bargaining unit or by helping a labor organization's rival.

The new board last October had brought in an interim executive director that the American Nurses Association said had ties to National Nurses United, which the ANA said had previously "raided" bargaining units from affiliated state associations.

The state association called the charges at the time "outrageous and legally baseless."

But relations with the ANA remained strained, and on Thursday 91 percent of the state association's nurses voted to sever those relations.
