Doctors at Harlem Hospital blast pension change, threaten to strike
Doctors at Harlem Hospital say they're upset over a recent decision by the Health and Hospitals Corporation to save money by limiting its relationship with Columbia University, and are now threatening to strike.
As a result, doctors will lose out on a deal that covered 100 percent of their kids' college tuition, 50 percent if they went elsewhere.
They will also no longer receive pension benefits provided by the university. Instead, they will now be employed by Physician Affiliate Group Of New York, a private corporation that manages Lincoln Medical Center in the Bronx.
