Join us in the UMass Campus Center, room 908 on Wednesday, April 4th at 7pm to discuss an upcoming nurses strike and local labor struggle involving Baystate Health, the largest hospital corporation in Western Mass, and the 200 nurses of Franklin Medical Center in Greenfield. Speaking will be one of the leading nurses, Donna Stern.
For over a year the nurses have been seeking to negotiate a fair contract with hospital management that provides good health care for the nurses and safe staffing standards so patients get the care they need and nurses aren't overworked.
We will discuss the dynamics leading to this strike and how it is connected to other labor struggles, such as the teacher strikes happening across the country. We will also be organizing a mobilization to the nurses's picket line between Tuesday April 10th and Friday April 12th. Join us in solidarity!
