I’ve been a healthcare giver for 30 years and I’ve never experienced it this stressful. The COVID pandemic put strain on the entire healthcare system, and each one of us, as individuals. We have been working tirelessly to provide safe, quality care to our patients and we are exhausted, still we continue on. We are the vital employees who keep our institutions vital in our communities. It’s hard to understand why the League employers aren’t doing everything they can to settle this contract now, instead of stalling. The sooner we have the contract we deserve, the sooner we have the peace of mind we earned and our patients deserve.
