McLaren Flint nurses approve strike if contract not reached by Nov. 4
Vote passed by 98% Monday evening
FLINT, Mich. (WJRT) - The union representing McLaren Flint hospital nurses voted in favor of a strike if a fair contract deal is not agreed to in the next three weeks.
Without a deal by Nov. 4, the frontline workers of AFSCME Local 875 will walk off the job that morning. A union member told ABC12 News that the strike vote passed by 98%.
Nurses say above all else, the biggest priority is patient safety over profits.
