SOMERS POINT, N.J., Oct. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nurses at Shore Medical Center today announced the cancellation of a scheduled one-day strike after negotiations began to show signs of movement.
Members of the Shore Nurses Union had reluctantly authorized a one-day strike that was scheduled to begin on October 22nd at 7am. The decision to cancel came after marathon bargaining sessions that, at times, lasted into the early morning as well as after movement on some of the core issues between the union and hospital management.
"We thank the community for all of the support, and we are optimistic that continuing the negotiations will result in a deal that is beneficial for everyone," said Suzanne Jenkins, co-chair of the Shore Nurses Union bargaining committee.
