The occasion for this video interview with Stewart Acuff: 150 folks were gathered in Roseburg, Oregon on May 4, 2007 to support the nurses who work at Mercy Hospital. Over a year ago the Mercy Nurses voted overwhelmingly to form a union and join the Oregon Nurses Association, yet the Mercy Administration has failed to bargain in good faith and the nurses do not have a contract yet. Following can be found two stories about the Mercy Nurses.
