Patty DeVinney, president of Local 1168/Nurses United, said a major sticking point in bargaining was the hospital's demand to shift all employees into its lowest paying health plan.Also, nurses with families and small children were being required to work unlimited overtime, often double shifts.

The nurses went on strike April 6 after rejecting management's "final" offer, DeVinney said.The hospital brought in the Littler, Mendelson law firm as consultants and paid as much as $5,000 per week plus travel and lodging for replacement nurses brought in from Denver, Colo., by U.S. Nursing Corp.
"Their goal was to bust us and they thought the (local) nurses would fall apart immediately, but they didn't," DeVinney said."The entire nursing community was watching this very closely.I think they were trying to bust the entire Catholic Health System."

The announcement by Viasystems Group Inc. that it was shutting down its Richmond, Va., circuit board facility and moving that work to China is just the most recent example of how U.S. trade policy acts to destroy good-paying jobs and encourages companies to seek out the lowest possible labor and environmental standards, CWA charged.
