NNU Nurses at Medstar Washington Hospital Center will go on strike next Monday, December 22nd, to demand that their employer put patients before profits. In this video some of the nurse leaders explain in their own words why they are striking:
Medstar is intimidating nurses and threatening to retaliate against them for standing up for us—their community and past, present and future patients—with a ten-day lockout. If you are from the DC region, please SIGN the petition supporting them and JOIN them on the picket line Monday.
You can also write letters to Washington Hospital Execs (emails publicly available and copied below) to let them know what you think about their putting profits before patient safety, and call out WHC and MedStar on Twitter.
