The New York nurses’ strike ended after the hospitals reached an agreement
A strike at four New York hospitals has ended after 7,000 nurses walked off the job, one of the hospitals said Thursday morning.
“The strike is over and we have a deal,” Mount Sinai Health System tweeted.
The strike began Monday, with hundreds of medical professionals picketing at Mount Sinai in Manhattan.
After the strike, a travel nurse working at the hospital told The Post that the strike alone disrupted the hospital because the skeleton crews took on a heavy workload.
“My God, it’s not what they’re saying, it’s worse,” he said.
The strike began at 1 a.m. Monday at three locations at Mount Sinai’s main campus on the Upper East Side and Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx. Other hospitals in the city recently reached preliminary agreements with their nurses, who will be replaced by the same union.
