UAB Hospital ER night-shift nurses refusing to work tonight as a protest.
They are protesting due to what they call unequal compensation and unsatisfactory working conditions.

quote:

Over two dozen UAB Emergency Room night shift nurses refused to clock in, citing, among other things, a lack of equal compensation.

quote:

“We are here fighting for equal compensation,” a nurse on the scene said. “We’re fighting for what we deserve.”

“It has been very overwhelming” during this surge of COVID-19, another nurse said. “We don’t feel appreciated. We want someone to come down and be willing to negotiate with us.”

The nurses told CBS 42’s Art Franklin that patient care is not being compromised by the collection action.

Sounds like they don't deserve much.

Come work in an auto factory. No auto factory workers have time to make TikTok videos or sit at a nurses station all night long

This is about travel nurse pay rates vs locals right?

Interesting.

I wonder if the UAB medical system is using travel nurses to make up for extra demand, and the normal nurses don’t like the travel nurse pay?

Then they should become travel nurses

Problem with travel nursing is that you might not have a job when demand goes down

Not sure yet. None of the local news stories I’ve read so far have gotten that specific. That would make sense as an explanation, though.

Travel nurses worse than travel baseball.

Unfortunately, due to the extreme nursing shortage, they will likely get what they want. If a single death is even remotely tied to their actions, they should all face charges.

You had your chance to negotiate when you were hired. You accepted it so do your job.

They’re all overweight. How can you work in the medical field and be fat?

I have no clue what I’m talking about but I’d think they are screwing the day shift that can’t leave until they clock in

Comorbid nurses. Hopefully they take a few laps in their downtime. May as well since Chick Fil-A is closed today.
