(Greenfield, MA) - Union nurses at Baystate Franklin Medical Center are expected to decide Tuesday whether to strike for the second time in as many years.

Union officials say this year’s stoppage could be as long as three days. Management and the rank-and-file remain far apart on the issue of overtime pay.
