The article reports that the California Nurses Association (CNA)/National Nurses Organizing Committee fell three votes short of a majority to obtain the right to represent 1,100 nurses in the Saint Rose Dominican Hospital system. It needed 403 votes to take over, but the group earned 400 votes in the secret balloting, with 377 nurses voting to stick to their current group, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).
