The nurses strike and lockout that was scheduled for last February was postponed until today. The lockout begins this evening at 7pm. The nurses are striking tomorrow. The lockout continues until 7pm on Fri, April 13th.
We are fully open and operational during this time. Please do not hesitate to call Pioneer Women’s Health if you have any questions or concerns at 413-773-2200.
We remain dedicated to providing exceptional family-centered care for every woman’s labor and bi...rth. Every patient will be cared for by a Pioneer Women's Health midwife. The midwives are not members of the nurses' union. We will have additional unit coverage by our midwives, physicians and nurse managers, on call at all times, to ensure that all of our patients’ needs are met. We love our nurses and we cannot wait for them to return to our unit. We continue to hope for fair negotiations between the MNA and the Baystate administration.
This is a free drop-in support group for mothers at any stage of their breastfeeding journeys. Women can come to ask questions or just be in the company of other mamas. All are welcome. http://bace-nmc.org/about/
