In Solidarity,


NYS Nurses’ Association R.N.’s Informational Picket Line

Wednesday, July 7, 2:00 – 4:30 p.m.

Ellis Hospital, Nott Street, Schenectady

NYSNA R.N.’s at Ellis have been negotiating, with little success, since January for a new contract.  Management negotiators have refused consistently to include core staffing guidelines in the contract; have admitted in negotiations that their aim is to reduce operating expenses; are demanding extensive give-backs of well-established gains and have refused to move on a completely unrealistic salary proposal.

Ellis R.N.’s want safe care for their patients, acceptable working conditions and a decent contract.  They are taking their case to the community and to their brothers and sisters in organized labor.

When we need R.N’s they are there to care for us.  When they need us, we need to be there to support them.  Any contribution of time on July 7th will be appreciated by Ellis R.N.’s
