Over 7,000 Nurses On Strike in NYC

Objectivity 4.6 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4. 7

New York City is witnessing a strike of over 7,000 nurses after union representatives left negotiation meetings at two prominent hospitals even though Gov. Kathy Hochul called for arbitration.  The New York State Nurses Association said they were protesting “for fair contracts that improve patient care.”  Mount Sinai Hospital said in a statement that the NYSNA is “refusing to accept the exact same 19.1 percent increased wage offer agreed to by eight other hospitals… and disregarding the Governor’s solution to avoid a strike.”
