Saranac Lake, NY, Apr 08, 2011 — A large group of nurses gathered in front of one of the region's largest health care facilities this week to call for fair wages and benefits.
The nurses' union at the Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake says it wants a contract similar to those at other area hospitals, like the CVPH Medical Center in Plattsburgh and the Alice Hyde Medical Center in Malone.
But hospital officials counter that they've been negotiating in good faith, and that their contract proposal is, in fact, fair.
