Have you gotten an email from a Michigan-based staffing agency — asking you to work at UMass Memorial Medical Center this week?
You should ignore these emails. In fact, you should mark them as “spam.”
UMass nurses have gone from working in the best staffed hospital in Worcester to the worst staffed hospital. This week, 1,100 members of the Massachusetts Nurses Association (MNA) are preparing for a one-day strike for safe staffing levels.
Management is hoping they can recruit people to replace the strikers. But we can help MNA nurses win safe staffing by letting other nurses know not to cross the picket line at UMass Memorial.
Forward this information with other nurses you know and tell them to support Massachusetts nurses, patients, and safe staffing.
Yesterday, 1,500 of us rallied for safe staffing in New York. Today, we have an opportunity to help win safe staffing for patients in our sister state.
We can win safe staffing in New York, Massachusetts, and the entire country — by sticking together.
