Nurses win settlement over wages

Wall Street Journal, March 9, 2009
Troy, NY-based healthcare network Northeast Health has agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit alleging that managers conspired to keep registered nurses' wages artificially low, in a move that could affect other defendants in the case and four related suits across the country. Northeast Health agreed to pay $1.25 million in the settlement. The company didn't admit any wrongdoing and called the allegations in the lawsuit "completely false and offensive." About 2,500 nurses are represented in the class, and the settlement is subject to court approval.
