    [s]linda merfeld, local 199's dubuque chapter president, said nurses are fighting for just-cause discipline, emergency-only overtime and quality patient care.

    she said she hopes the strike sends a message to hospital management.

    "the hospital needs to stop spending health-care dollars fighting nurses," merfeld said.

    I certainly hope the best for these striking nurses, and I believe that they are doing what they believe is best for all nurses employed there. Just to set the record straight, it's not just for the money.........You're all in my prayers!
