Linda S. Bridge was an elected Nurse
Representative of the California Nurses Association at Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health
Center in Glendale, CA and member of the union's negotiating team at that hospital. This
collection consists of her files while in those roles. Materials include those used in the
unionization of registered nurses at Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center, ensuing
contract negations, and the implementation of those contracts. There is also a small amount
of material regarding statewide union initiatives.
At Glendale Memorial Hospital (GMHHC) in mid-2000 the California Nurses Association (CNA)
had their organizers stationed outside each of the GMHHC employee entrances. As the
Registered Nurses left the facility at the end of their shifts various organizers approached
us to ask if we would be interested in unionizing and joining CNA.
