Nurses strike threatens Montefiore Medical Center

Thousands of Bronx nurses could be hitting the picket line at Montefiore Medical Center.
According to the New York State Nurses Association, which represents 2,000 workers at the local hospital, a strike is possible if negotiations over a new contract remain unsettled.
More than 22,000 office and apartment cleaners in The Bronx are also prepared for a work stoppage. Local 32BJ, of the Service Employees International Union, says that more than 4,000 of their workers will strike if they don't have a new contract when the current one expires Jan. 1.
