In a follow up to last week's story about nurses in Schenectady planning a one day strike; Ellis Medicine has now informed the nurses that if they strike, they will be locked out of their jobs for 4 days. The nurses are planning the one day strike to advocate for their patients and to push for safe staffing ratios. Shame on Ellis for putting patients' health and lives at risk by not only refusing to provide safe staffing levels, but then forcing the skilled nurses to be locked out of taking care of the sick for 4 more days. The nurses have been working without a contract for the last 20 months. For more on what you can do to help these nurses visit
