Federal and state mediators joined reps from both sides of a labor dispute Saturday at the state's Bureau of Labor Relations. This following a strike notice the Michigan Nurses Association issued on behalf of the Professional Employees Council Wednesday morning, calling for a walk-out if contracts are not finalized by 7 a.m., December 6.
Outside Saturday's meeting, both sides expressed commitment to finding a solution. If a strike happens, this will be the first at Sparrow. Hospital reps say they have a contingency plan, and care will not stop.
