Nurses Protest Threat of Layoffs

Informational Picket At Cooley Dickinson Questions Need For Layoffs

The Registered Nurses of the Massachusetts Nurses Association bargaining units at Cooley Dickinson Hospital and the Visiting Nurse Association of Cooley Dickinson are holding an informational picket to inform the community about the threat of unnecessary layoffs at the hospital and the VNA.  While Cooley Dickinson has shown a profit of more than $8 million over the last year, they have threatened layoffs and blamed the MNA nurses for their alleged financial problems.
