CVPH nurses picket

(Continued)

PLATTSBURGH —

“We value our employees and their contributions, and we respect their right to picket. 

“Our responsibility to them and the patients we serve is to be wise fiscal and operational stewards, ensuring that the Medical Center continues its mission to the North Country far into the future.”

‘NEED FAIR SHAKE’

Several other union representatives joined the nurses in a show of solidarity, including the Northeast Central Labor Council and the Plattsburgh-Saranac Lake Building and Construction Trades.

“We think workers need a fair shake,” said Betty Lennon, president of the Labor Council. “The middle class is going down the drain.”

NYSNA represents more than 800 of CVPH’s 2,300 employees. Also among its membership are audiologists, physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and social workers.
