Nurse practitioners at clinics in Walgreen drug stores in Illinois are forming a union.

CHICAGO (AP) — Nurse practitioners at clinics in Walgreen drug stores in Illinois are forming a union.

The Illinois Nurses Association announced Thursday it has agreed to represent the approximately 180 nurse practitioners who work in the Take Care Clinics in the Chicago area, Rockford and Peoria.

The nurses are concerned about a pay reduction, an increase in the cost of their health benefits and other issues.

Deerfield-based Walgreen Co. operates 45 Take Care Clinics in Illinois.

The Illinois Nurses Association has filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board to form a union of nurse practitioners working at the clinics.
