No New Tentative Agreements Reached Yesterday, Bargaining Continues to Avert Jan. 9 Strike
Mount Sinai Hospital has finally agreed to come back to the bargaining table today
New York, NY—After a day of bargaining at Montefiore and Mount Sinai Morningside and West yesterday, no new tentative agreements were reached. Mount Sinai Hospital management walked out on the last bargaining session and avoided the table and their responsibility to bargain in good faith on Friday and Saturday.
Today, Mount Sinai agreed to meet with NYSNA nurses, and all three hospitals will be at the bargaining table.
Approximately 8,700 NYSNA NYC nurses at three hospitals—Montefiore Bronx, Mount Sinai Hospital, and Mount Sinai Morningside and West—will strike on Monday morning if agreements cannot be reached.
NYSNA will hold a press briefing today, Jan. 8 from 11:30 a.m.—12:00 p.m. with NYSNA President Nancy Hagans, RN, BSN, CCRN.
This short briefing will provide an update about what is happening with contract negotiations at hospitals that will strike beginning Jan. 9 unless tentative contract agreements can be reached. There will be opportunities to ask questions.
The briefing will be recorded and distributed to members of the press who register at the link below. You must register below to attend.
FOR PLANNING PURPOSES ONLY: should management force nurses to strike on Monday, elected officials, labor and community allies will join striking NYSNA nurses on the picket line Monday, Jan. 9 at 12 PM noon for a press conference outside Mount Sinai Hospital at Madison and E. 99th Street in Manhattan.
The New York State Nurses Association represents more than 42,000 members in New York State. We are New York’s largest union and professional association for registered nurses. NYSNA is an affiliate of National Nurses United, AFL-CIO, the country's largest and fastest-growing union and professional association of registered nurses, with more than 225,000 members nationwide.
