Union Strikers Reach Tentative Deal With Their Union Employer

On Friday night, after nine months of negotiations, the United Steelworkers-represented staff (allegedly) went on strike against their union-employer, the New York State Nurses Association.

After spending the weekend on the picket lines (though there is some question as to whether the union strikers actually walked out on their union employer), the union and its striking(?) union hammered out a tentative deal.

The New York State Nurses Association has reached a tentative agreement with the union representing its field staff that went on strike Friday night.

“We hammered things out and I think everyone will be happy,” said Vickie Longo, co-chair of the United Steelworkers unit that represents the professional staff.


Staff members are expected to vote on the contract Tuesday. Longo said they could be back to work as early as Wednesday.

The association has been negotiating a contract for the past nine months with the United Steelworkers, which represents field staff in the Economic & General Welfare program. Many members of the staff are registered nurses and lawyers who represent unionized NYSNA nurses in the grievance process and contract negotiations throughout the state.
