NEW LONDON (AP) — Contract negotiations were set to resume between Lawrence + Memorial Hospital and striking nurses at the New London facility.
A spokesman for the hospital said talks were to be held Friday night with the help of a federal mediator. The next bargaining session was not originally scheduled to be held until next Tuesday.
The strike is in its third day and several hundred striking nurses along with their supporters held a rally outside the hospital on Friday.
The union accuses L+M of transferring work to non-union affiliates. L+M chief executive Bruce Cummings said the hospital’s administration wishes it could provide air-tight job security for all workers.
