Local 1103 Montefiore Nyack Hospital Workers Rally for a Fair Contract
CWA Local 1103 workers at Montefiore Nyack Hospital held an informational picket on October 14th to call on the hospital to bargain in good faith for a fair contract. The workers’ previous contract expired on June 30, 2022. They have been negotiating a new contract covering 130 technical employees.
“For over two years, our members sacrificed their own health and well-being to care for patients and members of the community during a worldwide pandemic,” said Kevin Sheil, President of CWA Local 1103. “Every single day, they reported for duty and were here to help save lives, even when they were scared for their own lives. They reported for duty because they were committed to their careers, the hospital and to the health and safety of the community. It is time for Montefiore Nyack Hospital to treat their employees with the respect they deserve and come to this bargaining table and do just that.”
The workers were joined by other union members, health care workers, community allies, elected officials, including State Senator Elijah Reichlin-Melnick and State Assemblymember Ken Zembroski.
