Your bargaining team met with Astria on Wednesday. We presented a proposal designed to soften the impact of the closure on all of us while helping ARMC nurses transition to our next chapters. We were outraged that Astria’s response did nothing to recognize the hard work and sacrifice that we have all made to support this hospital and our community. Astria was unwilling to offer a severance package of any kind. Please know that this is not over. While we would have liked to reach a speedy resolution to this matter, we continue to believe that Astria must be held accountable for what they have done to us, our patients and our community. WSNA is currently exploring all potential legal remedies available to us. Please stay tuned.
