Nurses United To Vote On Authorizing a One-Day Unfair Labor Practice Protest Strike

 
This past March, nurses at the Washington Hospital Center were scheduled to begin negotiations with MedStar Health, the company which owns the Washington Hospital Center. Just weeks before negotiations were set to begin, February's record-breaking snowstorms hit D.C., crippling the region. In what may have been a 'shot over the bow,' the hospital violated its own existing policy and fired 18 members of Nurses United who were unable to make it to work during the blizzard. Of these 18 nurses, nine have had their positions reinstated. Audio nursesunited.org
