PITTSFIELD — As members of the Steering Committee of the Berkshire Democratic Brigades, we wholeheartedly support the nurses at Berkshire Medical Center in their ongoing efforts to negotiate a fair contract with the hospital administration.
One of our core values as Democrats is standing in solidarity with working people — in this case the nurses at Berkshire Medical — whose quality of life and standard of living continue to be eroded. These nurses are family members, friends, and neighbors who confront life and death decisions nearly every day. They are the front-line providers whom we depend on to deliver direct, continuous care in a frequently high-stress environment.
