The struggle of health care workers
Oppose the sellout of the New York City nurses strike!

The powerful three-day strike of more than 7,000 nurses in New York City was abruptly shut down by New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) officials.

Nurses must establish a rank-and-file committee to defeat this sellout.
