“NO STRIKE 4/2 BUT STAY STRIKE READY,” the nurses’ union announced.
The New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) has announced the postponement of the strike date set for April 2nd after progress was made in the bargaining at the Mount Sinai, Montefiore, and New York-Presbyterian Hospital Systems, according to a statement issued by the union.
“This breakthrough comes after six months of negotiations,” NYSNA stated.
“Today, with a new NYC based neutral mediator brought in emergently, management made an opening proposal on staffing,” the union stated on its Facebook page.
“Thanks to you, our unity and strength forced management to make the following opening proposal with a proviso that we postpone our strike notice to give them more time. They chose not to fund the replacement staffing agencies and instead committed to putting that money toward additional staffing that will be reflected in our contract.”
“NO STRIKE 4/2 BUT STAY STRIKE READY,” the nurses’ union stated.
