"......, as of June 1, 7,800 nurses will withold their services in a work stoppage starting at 5:30am.
Nurses are emphatically unified in their determination to stand up and speak out for safe patient care. Nurses have demanded bold changes in their contracts, and proposals advanced by the hospitals remain far from adequate.
Meanwhile, community support continues to pour in to the MNA offices from individuals and organizations in the form of memos, voices mails and pledges of donations."
Read about it here:
On June 1st when nearly 8,000 Minnesota nurses walk I wish every nurse across the country that isn't working would gather in their respective communities and have demonstrations to support the Minnesota nurses. It would be a great public awareness opportunity.
Any ideas how this could be quickly organized?
I'm in Cleveland Ohio and would love to hear from any nurses in the area that would like to gather on Public Square around 5:30 a.m. when they are expected to strike, and hold a demonstration and vigil of support for them.
And for our own Youngstown nurses who have been out over a week now. And administration doesn't even show up for scheduled meetings!
Let's get the eyes of the nation focused on nurses!
