Nurses in Walgreens’ Take Care Clinics in Illinois forming union
New York City -- The Illinois Nurses Association announced Thursday it has agreed to represent the approximately 180 nurse practitioners who work in the Take Care Clinics in the Chicago area, Rockford and Peoria. Walgreens operates 45 Take Care Clinics in Illinois.
The nurses are concerned about a pay reduction, an increase in the cost of their health benefits and other issues.
The Illinois Nurses Association has filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board to form a union of nurse practitioners working at the clinics.
