Angry over lost benefit, Temple University Hospital nurses, techs picket

Philadelphia Inquirer, April 2, 2010

Shouting slogans and hoisting placards, hundreds of Temple University Hospital nurses and technical employees walked a picket line amid a standoff over management demands for benefit cuts and other union concessions. Some 1,500 nurses and technical staff walked off their jobs March 31, incensed that the hospital had eliminated a popular tuition assistance program and had failed to add nurses in what they described as understaffed units, among other grievances, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
