Nurses rally against mandatory overtime

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, January 30, 2008
More than 100 nurses, led by the Healthcare division of the Service Employees International Union, massed in Pittsburgh's Capitol rotunda to demand that the state Senate act on a bill that would ban mandatory overtime health care workers who take care of patients in hospitals and nursing homes. The state House passed such a ban on mandatory overtime by a vote of 166 to 31 nine months ago, but the Senate hasn't taken up the issue. The healthcare workers demanded that the Senate vote on the bill.
