Files on Nurses Unions (Boston Police Department)

Liam Knox filed this request with the Boston Police Department of Boston, MA.
Multi Request Files on Nurses Unions
Est. Completion None
Fix Required


From: Liam Knox

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

A copy of all files relating to any of the following nurses' unions, from 2000-2019:
United Nurses and Allied Professionals
Massachusetts Nurses Association
Service Employees International Union United Healthcare Workers East
National Nurses United
American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO)
AFT Nurses and Health Professionals

I am also seeking any communications, memos, and other documents relating to healthcare workers strikes in this same time frame, such as the many that took place in Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, etc. in the past few years.

I request that I be properly classified as a news media requester. I am an intern for MuckRock, and I am requesting this information in that editorial capacity. MuckRock is widely known for its investigative work as well as historical pieces based on public records requests.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.
