Are Nurses and Hospitals Talking Again?

nursesstrikesigns Are Nurses and Hospitals Talking Again?

Neither side is commenting. But there are hints that union nurses and 14 Twin Cities hospitals are communicating once again, with the threat of a strike next Tuesday morning. The hospitals abruptly cancelled radio ads this morning – ads which were critical of the nurses. U of M Labor Professor Aaron Sojourner calls it a positive sign when the two sides are not talking to the media. 


A key issue in the dispute is staffing levels. During 11 hours of negotiations on Tuesday, both sides modified their positions but little progress was reported. A union official says a “media blackout” is in effect.
