Union workers pound the pavement at Stamford Hospital
Approximately 170 union workers at Stamford Hospital are pounding the pavement Wednesday in an effort to get a new contract.
The union represents dietary workers at the hospital and nursing assistants at the Tandet Center. The workers have been without a contract since September 30. One of the main sticking points is an affordable health care plan. The union?s vice president says the group has modified its proposals but the Stamford Health System has not agreed.
Stamford Hospital says it has offered wage increases, benefit improvements and contract protections, but the union only offered them picket lines. The hospital brought in replacement workers during the walkout. The union workers plan to end the strike Friday.
