Nurses Protest Stalled Contract Talks

Nurses from Baystate Health's Franklin  Medical Center and Noble Hospital are planning an informational picket  outside Baystate's corporate headquarters in Springfield  today.  

The Massachusetts Nurses Association says its nurses at the  facilities in Greenfield and Westfield have been trying for over a year  to negotiate fair contracts, but that Baystate executives have refused  to allow what they consider fair bargaining for months.  

Baystate  Franklin's nurses staged a one-day strike in June, and Baystate  responded by locking them out for an additional two-day period.
