More than 1200 nurses at Boston hospital start strike

Nurses say patient safety, lack of resources behind their strike at New England medical center Tufts nurses stage one-day strike in protest after Tuesday negotiations fail to yield contract agreement

The 1,200 registered nurses at Tufts Medical Center are on strike until 6:59 a.m. Thursday in what their union said is the largest nurses' strike in MA history and the first in Boston in over 30 years.

Another striker said that for a long time, nurses had acceded to the hospital's demands in order to avoid strikes. "This decision really shows administration's lack of respect for its nurses and for the safety our patients".

The union formally ended the strike at 7 a.m. Thursday and a few dozen of the 1,200 striking nurses crossed Washington Street chanting "we want to work" as they tried to enter the hospital.

Ms. Nicholas cited the union's documented intentions to strike at a time most harmful to the hospital, which she called "completely irresponsible".

"It is extremely unfortunate that the union has continued to hold out for more money and an ill-conceived pension plan and has made good on its threat to harm our great medical center", said Michael Wagner, president and CEO of Tufts.

Hospital adminstrators said the hospital has been functioning smoothly and without interruptions to patient care since the strike began.

The MNA called the strike historic, saying it is the first strike by nurses in Boston in over 30 years and the largest nurses' strike in MA history.

"We get gunshots, we get people falling from trees, getting hit by cars".

The hospital hired 320 replacement nurses in preparation for a strike.

The union says Tufts nurses have the lowest pay and the worst pension in the city.

"I feel like we've been forced to this point", said one striking nurse. "They leave holes on schedules".

An indefinite strike would begin from Monday under the leadership of United Nurses Association (UNA).
