UMass takes aim at nurses

  1. Negotiating session today

    WORCESTER-- Tired of taking what they saw as a battering in the public arena, officials at UMass Memorial Medical Center decided to fight back.

    The medical center, the biggest employer in Central Massachusetts, had been on the defensive against a relentless barrage from its unhappy and aggressive nurses union, which has been fighting the hospital's attempt to do away with its traditional pension plan.

    The nurses had picketed, marched on UMass Memorial President and CEO John O'Brien's office, and, finally, on Sept. 21, voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike.
