Help Our Nurses on Nov. 30th

On Saturday November 30 from 10am to Noon we will hold informational picketing and petition signing in front of the First Churches (corner of main St. & Center St.) downtown Northampton.  Please come by and show your support for the nurses.


Background:  The Nurses in ServiceNet’s HomeCare program voted to form a Union in December of 2011.  Contract Bargaining began in February of 2012. Nineteen months and 40 meetings later ServiceNet has still been unwilling to settle the contract. Among the key remaining issues are:

        • new nurse orientation 
        • safe staffing ratios
        • ServiceNet’s demand that the nurses surrender their right to strike, not only during the contract, but after it expires too.

If you would like more information about helping with this rally or to learn more about the nurses’ struggle to get their first contract settled, contact Brooks Ballenger at
