Union victory in Houston

From the Texas Observer:

The National Nurses Organizing Committee, née the California Nurses Association, broke through an important barrier last month. On March 28, a majority of participating nurses at the Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center voted to let the union negotiate a contract on their behalf, making the Houston facility the first privately owned hospital in the state to unionize.

Cool. For those who don't know, Houston's no union town. At all. By any means. Whatsoever. So this is really surprising and uplifting.

All I gotta say is, nurses: rock on!
