Hospital Workers Strike Drags On

Nurses at two Rhode Island hospitals who recently returned to work after a strike are figuring out their next steps. Members of Local 5098 of the United Nurses and Allied Professionals overwhelmingly voted "no confidence" on Thursday in the leadership of hospital operator Lifespan and Rhode Island Hospital. They also voted to authorize members of the bargaining team to issue a 10-day strike notice if negotiations stall. A second vote by the membership would be required to go on strike.
