Hooray,I just got a new strike pay contract

  1. I just got a new strike contract set up. I love all that money. And sometimes I even get it without having to work for it. I love strikes and strike money.

    Makes me Happy
    Makes me smile
    and it may seem sappy
    as I golf more all the while

    So does that mean you come in and replace nurses who go out on strike? I'm guessing that's what it means.

    Well, it was just an inflammatory post meant to start trouble.

    Very transparent-how sad.

    And just how does this relate to General nursing discussion? Maybe this should be in the breakroom.

    Does this mean you were on strike and got an increase because of it? Seems some of us are confused by what you're saying in your post.

    What I said was tongue in cheek. I'm sure the original post was meant to be somewhat inflammatory. I was trying to make light of the op. It would be nice to have a good discussion on this board and with nurses in general that does not turn into an all-or-nothing flame fest. I don't think it's possible though, here or elsewhere. (At least about this topic anyway.)

    I don't know how nursing unions work, but when the UMWA strikes, if you don't participate in strike activities (picket lines, volunteer efforts, etc), you didn't get your strike pay.

    When Teeituptom says "strike pay" he means "scab pay". Strike pay is for the nurses with integrity who try to better working conditions and compensation for nurses. I am just clarifying this for you, since I will not even waste my time responding to someone like that.

    Umass Medical Center In Worcester Mass,just Had A 5 Horu Strijke And The Hospital Settled...guess They Were Calling Our Bluff..the Strike Busting Nurses Weren't Even Used..they Had Security Guards Lock Arms Together To Keep 18 Er Nurses From Leaving When The Union(mna) Told The Rn's To Get Out,i Guess The Rn's Slithered Out Between The Guards....
