DC Strike?

  1. Does anyone know what Fastaff / U.S. Nursing is hiring for in Washington, D.C.? On their website it says they need 600 nurses for all specialties starting May 4. What hospital is this at? Is it a strike / labor dispute or a hospital doing a computer conversion? Thanks in advance for any replies.

    I can venture a guess that it is for Washington Hospital Center, whose contract was due to expire this upcoming Monday and has just been extended to May 10. There are rumors of strike circulating. Of course, it could also be for something completely unrelated

    My best educated guess it is the Hospital Center. Their nurses have been in negotiations since March. 16 were terminated for not getting to work during the "Blizzard of the Century" on the East Coast in Feb. The hospital wants to take back benefits that the nurses and union do not want to sacrifice.

    However, it could be something different.
