Support Baystate Franklin Medical Center Nurses

If Baystate does not agree to a fair contract, nurses will strike for 24 hours starting at 6 a.m. on June 26 and be prepared to re-enter the hospital at 6 a.m. on June 27.

Nurses and supporters will be picketing for the entire 24-hour period outside the hospital at 164 High St. Please join us to let Baystate know that nurses and all hospital staff deserve to be treated with respect and bargained with in good faith.

Baystate has threatened to lock out nurses from 7 p.m. Sunday to 7 p.m. Wednesday. This reckless decision by Springfield executives was made to retaliate against our nurses for exercising their legal right to strike. Baystate would rather pay replacement nurses from outside the community than properly value and respect BFMC nurses.

On Sunday night, June 25, stand with us starting at 7 p.m. outside the hospital!

100% Renewable Energy Informational Meetings

Can we get 100% of our energy from renewable sources? By joining the statewide campaign outlined by Mass Power Forward, we can follow a step by step approach that will help us move towards this goal in all of our towns. Together with many other communities across the state we can provide an example to the rest of the nation about how this can be done.

Come hear about the details of this plan at any one of our forums in Franklin County. For more information and to RSVP to one of our events, use this link.
