Northside nurses reauthorize strike call

Published: Wed, October 2, 2013 @ 9:31 p.m.


Registered nurses at Northside Medical Center overwhelmingly voted today to reauthorize its union negotiating committee to call a strike against the hospital, if necessary.

Members of the Youngstown General Duty Nurses Association, which represents about 485 RNs at ValleyCare Northside voted on the action during three meetings today.

The meetings were conducted at 8 a.m. and 4 and 8 p.m. at Teamsters Local 377 Hall at 1223 Teamster Drive.

Northside nurses conducted a one-day strike on Sept. 24 and upon returning to the hospital were locked out for varying periods of time ranging from 72 hours to Tuesday, when the last returned to work.

YGDNA’s by-laws require that a new strike authorization vote be conducted when there is a possibility of a strike.

The ONA issued the Sept. 24 strike notice on Sept. 12, the day after the last negotiating session. Despite some progress, the Sept. 11 talks failed to produce an agreement, union officials said. Last month, YGDNA members overwhelmingly rejected the most recent offer from CHS executives and Northside management, union officials said.
