I would like to hear from some of the 67% of people who said "yes" to this question.

No. Why waste American lives and money on people who will hate us no matter what we do. Let them sort it out for themselves.

papa1, while Northside had empty beds, TMH, St Joes, and St E's were running close to capacity.

NoBS, your argument might carry some weight if it were just the housekeeping and kitchen staffs who settled their contracts, but it's not. It's the pharmacists, LPNs, Trumbull RNs as well as the support staff who have all settled contracts with CHS. The RNs at Northside are, I believe, the last to be negotiating their contract.

No comprehension problems here, how about you? I also said they were offered the exact same contract that the other unions were offered. They turned it down. I infer that it means that they are not interested in bargaining in good faith with the hospital system. Also, if the nurses at Northside have so much community support, why are there so many empty beds there?

Interesting that 77% of the people who responded want the nurses to strike. Makes me wonder if it is some people trying to encourage trouble or if it is Northside nursing staff trying to "show that they have the support of the public".

Wow, they were offered the same contract that all of the other unioins working for Valleycare Health have been offered. Interesting that they are the only ones who are talking about striking over it.
