A kinder, gentler Enloe election
The administration spent an outrageous amount—somewhere between $500,000 and $1 million, according to some estimates—to hire a flame-throwing union-busting firm. We heard reports of nurses being forced to attend mandatory meetings to hear anti-union propaganda.
The CNA played hardball as well, spreading rumors and innuendo and throwing salt into the wounds of an already divided community.
This time around, the contest has been reduced to letters to the editor and a few paid advertisements. Enloe administration, admitting its earlier mistake, has kept a low profile.
For all the criticism this paper has handed out to the hospital big-wigs, we must also commend them when they do the right thing. In this case, both sides have handled themselves well.
