“Today was a historic win for our labor unions, healthcare advocates, patients, and the 7,000 nurses who rallied for a fair contract and safe staffing ratios. Our nurses are essential workers who during the onset of the pandemic risked their lives to provide around-the-clock patient-centered care to our residents and families and continue to do so every day at hospitals across our city. We owe them a debt of gratitude for their service and congratulate them on this monumental victory.”
