More union drama for Nashville hospital companies

Nashville Business Journal, December 14, 2010

Nurses at a Pennsylvania hospital owned by Community Health Systems Inc. are planning a one-day strike next week to protest what local unions call “bad faith bargaining” by the Franklin-based hospital giant.

The Wyoming Valley Nurses Association and the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals notified CHS over the weekend of its plan to strike on Dec. 23. According to the unions, nurses at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital have been working without a contract there for more than a

year.
