The RNs of Quincy Medical Center deserve better
From the Massachusetts Nurse Newsletter
July/August 2010 Edition
The nurses at Quincy Medical Center are continuing in their fight to protect their patients, their practice and their hospital. Over the last month, the bargaining unit has been cooperat-ing with the National Labor Relations Board in its investigation of the nurses’ charge of unfair labor practices, specifically management’s decision to declare impasse in their ongoing contract negotiations. The hospital’s MNA members have also been working to inform the public about their concerns for safe staffing and the hospital’s abhorrent behavior in these negotiations. Sup-portive letters to the editor have been placed in local newspapers and lawn signs are sprouting up in gardens everywhere.
