TRAVERSE CITY, MI – A large crowd is expected this coming Thursday, September 13 when nurses from Munson Medical Center and community supporters hold a rally. The speaking program will begin at 5:00 p.m.
Nurses are currently negotiating their first union contract at Munson Medical Center and urge the hospital to bargain an agreement that will fully support their patients and their profession. RNs seek safe staffing levels to ensure quality care, as well as wages and benefits that will help retain and recruit nurses to serve in northern Michigan.

“We are grateful for the support of our community as we negotiate to make Munson Medical Center the best it can be,” said Andrea Tomei, Munson Medical Center RN. “This rally is an opportunity to further raise awareness of the issues, such as staffing levels, that can affect our patients.”
