Westchester Medical Center nurses rally for new contract

Nurses at Westchester Medical Center rallied Wednesday for a new contract.



Members of the New York Nurses Association say they have been working without a contract for nearly six years.



They say they want more stability because many new nurses will train there, stay a few months and then leave.



A spokesperson from the medical center says administrators reached an agreement "with union leadership and nurse representatives that provided an additional $75 million in enhanced salary and benefits over four years. It was rejected by membership and is still on the table."



The nurses say they are still going to work every day and love their jobs, but just want what's best for their careers and their patients.



News 12 is told negotiations are still happening.
