Baystate Franklin Nurses Authorize Strike Call

(Greenfield, MA) — Nurses at Baystate Franklin Medical have authorized their union to call for a three-day strike if contract negotiations continue to stall. The hospital has put a three-year deal on the table, but a sticking point has to do with how overtime pay is calculated. The hospital wants overtime reserved for when nurses work more than a 40-hour week. The nurses want to preserve the current standard, where overtime kicks in after an 8-hour shift.
