New York City nurses strike ends after deal reached with hospitals

New York City nurses strike ends after deal reached with

The nurses strike that left four NYC hospitals scrambling for coverage after 7,000 nurses walked off the job has ended, one of the hospitals said early Thursday morning.

“The strike is over and we have an agreement,” Mount Sinai Health System tweeted.

The strike began Monday, with hundreds of healthcare professionals seen picketing outside Mount Sinai in Manhattan.

A travel nurse working at the hospital as a result of the strike told The Post exclusively that the strike had crippled the hospital as skeleton crews juggled an overwhelming workload.

“God, it’s not like they are saying it is — it’s worse,’’ she said.

The strike began at 1 a.m. Monday morning at Mount Sinai’s main campus on the Upper East Side and at three locations of Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx. Other hospitals in the city had recently reached tentative pacts with their nurses, who are repped by the same union.
