National Nurses United
The University of Chicago Medical Center and the National Nurses United union have reached a “tentative agreement” for a new collective bargaining agreement, staving off a potential nurses strike, both sides announced Monday.
The NATO Summit does not begin until Sunday, but nurses from Chicago across the country and world are protesting Friday for a change in the nation’s economic policy.
Is the city of Chicago double-crossing demonstrators planning protests during the weekend of the NATO summit? That’s what protest organizers are charging, claiming the city is going back on its word on where and how two big marches will conclude.
After learning their protest rally could be much larger than originally anticipated, city officials have told National Nurses United that they must change the route of their march to avoid the Loop.
Nurses working at the University of Chicago Medical Center have voted to authorize a strike if their demands are not met.
