Temple University Hospital says strikers rejected promising offer

Philadelphia Inquirer, April 8, 2010

Temple University Hospital's interim chief executive officer said that the union representing the Philadelphia hospital's striking nurses and allied professionals summarily rejected a mediator proposal that, if accepted, would have been taken back to management for review. "The mediator offered what I'll call a mediator-proposed settlement to both sides," Sandy Gomberg said. "If PASNAP had agreed to those terms, the Temple negotiating team would have found them acceptable and brought it back to management." The union said there was no mediator-proposed settlement at a meeting between the two sides—simply a Temple management proposal conveyed through the mediator, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
