Nurses at Baystate Franklin Medical Center in Greenfield have filed two unfair labor complaints. The nurses allege hospital administrators withheld information during contract negotiations and ordered them not to talk about the union within earshot of patients. The nurses are currently without a contract. The National Labor Relations Board will interview both sides at an October hearing. On another matter, union nurses and management at Baystate Franklin Medical Center have found some common ground on the issue of overtime. The state’s health policy commission has ruled the hospital can force nurses to work overtime during emergencies, but not as a matter of regular practice. That issue has been central to the contract negotiations.
