Northside nurses thank construction workers for support

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Members of the Ohio Nurses Association expressed their gratitude to construction workers who refused to cross the nurses picket line at Northside Hospital on Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Thursday, nurses delivered lunch to members of the Western Reserve Building Trades and Construction Council who stopped working on a project at the hospital's emergency room during the 24-hour work stoppage by the nurses union.

Although the strike officially ended at 7 a.m. Wednesday, some nurses returned to the picket line when they had not received notification from the hospital that they could return to work.

A statement issued by the hospital says that it expects all of the nurses who took part in the strike will be called back.

The strike was called after contentious negotiations failed to produce a new labor agreement for more than 400 nurses, who had been working without a contract for four months.

Both sides in the dispute have filed unfair labor practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board.

There is no word of continued negotiations.
