Tufts nurses end strike; not welcome back at work yet

Tufts nurses end strike; not welcome back at work yet

Thursday morning when their 24-hour strike ended, nurses attempted to enter the hospital but were block.

The disparities between Tufts and its competitors have been thrown into sharp relief by an ugly labor dispute.

The nurses of Tufts Medical Center are on strike as an agreement has not been made between the Massachusetts Nurses Association and the medical center.

A union representative says hospital management was "determined to force a strike". "This decision really shows administration's lack of respect for its nurses and for the safety our patients".

Andreas Pereira is determined to win over Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho while he's on tour in the United States. Last season he played 19 times in all competitions for United, plus once for England against Germany.

Nurses, however, disagree with the hospital's stance and say they did not receive proper notice saying they would not be allowed back to work after striking.

Tufts spokesperson Rhonda Mann called the nurses' attempt to return to work Thursday "a stunt orchestrated for the media" in a statement obtained by The Boston Globe. We went to the table with open minds, ready to once again be creative and resourceful in reaching an agreement that best meets the needs of our nurses, but the union recycled the same retirement proposal that is risky for our nurses and expensive for the hospital.

"We get gunshots, we get people falling from trees, getting hit by cars".

More than 1,200 nurses participated in the 1-day strike in Boston over such issues as staffing level- and pension benefit-improvement, and salary increases. We communicated this to our nurses through emails, meetings and letters sent to their homes. They said the nurses were aware of the five-day work contract for the temporary nurses. Those who chose not to work today know they can return Monday.
