BFMC Nurses Return to the Table

09.18.2012

Greenfield, Mass. -- The Registered Nurses of Baystate Franklin Medical Center return to the negotiating table tomorrow with management in an attempt to settle their contract and avert a strike. The nurses recently voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike, and the negotiation committee has delayed setting a date pending the outcome of this session.

This will be the 26th session of these negotiations. Baystate Corporate management continues to make demands that would be harmful to the quality of patient care for the citizens of
Franklin County. The nurses insist they will not compromise on the quality of care for their families, friends and neighbors.

Following negotiations, negotiating committee members will be available to speak with the media.

The session is scheduled for 9AM to noon at the First Congregational Church 43 Silver St. Greenfield, MA 01301.
