UPDATE: At 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, we ended our 24-hour strike at Terence Cardinal Cooke against unfair labor practices and for Safe Staffing.
NYSNA RNs at Terence Cardinal Cooke are raising the alarm about unsafe staffing and illegal employer practices at their facility. Please join us on Friday, August 15th to show solidarity and give support during our one-day strike.
