Sep 24, 2003 — In late August, a federal mediator joined contract talks between clerical workers and management at Canton-Potsdam Hospital. At issue for union workers is the future of health insurance benefits, pensions and salaries. For the fourth time since negotiations began, a federal mediator sat in on discussions Monday, but nothing was resolved. So dozens of workers took to the streets yesterday to protest what they call the lack of progress in labor talks. Jody Tosti has more.
