The Berkshire Eagle, October 4, 2017
Nurses took to the sidewalk outside Berkshire Medical Center early Tuesday to begin a one-day strike. The crowd quickly grew to 120 or more soon after 7 a.m. "What do we want? Safe staffing! When do we want it? Now!" chanted the nurses. The mood of the crowd was optimistic, with many wearing winter jackets to keep warm and some holding cups of hot coffee.
