Harlem Hospital doctors decide not to strike
Doctors at Harlem Hospital have decided not to strike over a new contract that would eliminate some of their benefits.
At a closed-door meeting Thursday afternoon, the doctors were briefed on the Health and Hospital Corporation's best offer, which they accepted.
Doctors had threatened to walk off the job over HHC's decision to limit its relationship with Columbia University to save money. That relationship allowed doctors to receive free college tuition for their children.
Doctors would also no longer be eligible for valuable Columbia University pensions.
