The Labor Task Force of FCCPR is urging members to turn out and support the nurses on their informational picket line Thursday, April 27, 4 – 5:30 p.m., Baystate-Franklin Hospital, 164 High St., Greenfield.
Or, sign their petition.
A letter from Donna Stern and Jillian Sicard, co-chairs of the Nurse Union said:
In recent weeks, the more than 200 BFMC nurses voted to authorize a one-day strike, filed six unfair labor practice charges against Baystate with the National Labor Relations Board and have participated in a community rally. We are fighting for safe patient limits, improved security for everyone at the hospital, and fair benefits and wages. Baystate refuses to agree to our patient safety and security proposals, and instead seeks to degrade our health benefits and mistreat nurses.
