Half of fired Washington Hospital Center nurses still fighting for jobs

Washington Post, June 15, 2010
Nine of the 18 nurses fired by Washington Hospital Center after they failed to show up for work during February's snowstorms are still fighting to get their jobs back, some of the nurses said in a teleconference with reporters. The hospital said it has reinstated nine nurses. But "the hospital has not been convinced of the error of their actions" regarding the remaining nine, said Stephen Frum, chief shop steward for Nurses United of the National Capital Region, which represents the hospital's approximately 1,600 nurses. Of the nine not reinstated, five have found other jobs, he said.
