Yikes. They're on Strike!

It isn't just a threat anymore. The nurses walked out at 7am for a 24 hour strike. Not sure how much movement a 24 hour strike can generate in contract negotiations, so we might be in this mess for awhile. 12,000 nurses in the metro are out. About 3,000 replacement nurses are covering.

heh 24 hour strike... I guess I find that fairly humorous :-)

Sometimes it works to send a message. I would love to send a few myself. :)

If I was in the hospital during even a 24 hour strike... I would be raising some havoc. It isn't neccessarily the nurses being gone, it's the loss they will have - financially - from patients leaving and potential lawsuits. A lot can happen in 24 hours.
