BAY SHORE, N.Y. — Hundreds of nurses on Long Island are preparing to go on strike later this month.
The New York State Nurses Association says around 800 nurses at Northwell Health’s South Shore University Hospital will strike on Feb. 27 unless an agreement is reached.
Nurses have been demanding what they call “safe staffing and fair wages.”
Earlier this month, 99% of nurses at the hospital in Bay Shore voted to authorize a strike.
A spokesperson for Northwell Health said in part, “We remain optimistic that an agreement can be reached and will continue to bargain in good faith and look forward to positive and productive ongoing negotiations.”
