Northside nurses seek new strategy to get contract


YOUNGSTOWN — ValleyCare Northside Medical Center’s registered nurses are meeting today to discuss and vote on a new strategy in their attempt to get an agreement with the hospital.

The nurses, members of the Youngstown General Duty Nurses Association, met at 8 a.m. and will also meet at noon, 4 and 8 p.m. at Teamsters Local 377 hall to learn about the new strategy and to pick up lawn signs that read: “Youngstown nurses: We care for you.”

Eric Williams, YGDNA president, said nurses at the 8 a.m. meeting approved the new strategy, which he would not immediately make public. He said while the membership previously gave the union negotiating committee the authority to call a strike, that issue is not on the agenda of today’s meetings.
