USW Members, Family and Friends
Come walk with the Nurses in Solidarity
Let’s show Duke LifePoint how we USW Members Support our Local Nurses
Currently the UPHS Nurses of the MNA Union are slated to strike Duke LifePoint on Thursday Oct. 5th and Friday Oct. 6th.
The Nurses have additional bargaining dates and mediation scheduled before Oct. 5th.
The Nurses have been in contract negotiations with Duke LifePoint since April 18. A two-month extension expired on July 28, and RNs have been working without a contract since. These Nurses have been dealing with unsafe staffing levels.
Now is the time for Duke LifePoint to do the right thing for patients – guarantee safe RN staffing levels and a hospital environment that will attract and retain nurses for years to come.
We will post additional information as it becomes available
Nurses are required by law to give the hospital 10 days’ notice before striking.
Nurses of the Duke LifePoint UPHS are Union members of the Michigan Nurses Association – MNA
