Truman Medical Center lab and tech workers are still fighting for a union

When Shannon Carpenter started working at Truman Medical Center 18 months ago, she noticed stark differences from her former place of employment, where she and her co-workers were represented by a union.

“It was really hard for me coming into Truman after leaving a union environment,” says Carpenter, who’s a laboratory assistant in the specimen receiving department. “I did not feel safe to go into my manager’s office to talk to her about any issues or any ideas that I had.”

So when some TMC coworkers approached Carpenter earlier this year about the possibility of unionizing with SEIU Healthcare Missouri, she was quick to join the fight.

In August, Carpenter and about 75 other TMC workers held a rally outside of Truman Medical Center to push for the hospital’s administration to recognize the union.
