Nurses' union withdraws labor relations charge against New York hospital
David Robinson

The New York State Nurses Association and Ellis Medicine appear to be heading toward an agreement after contract talks broke down earlier this year.

A labor relations charge filed against Ellis Medicine, the hospital system based in Schenectady, has been withdrawn, according to federal records.

The charge was connected to how Ellis handled raises and bonuses for nearly 120 workers tied to the contract negotiations.

The National Labor Relations Board filed a charge withdrawal notice dated Nov. 28.

Ellis Medicine officials declined to discuss the withdrawal notice, saying they do not comment while negotiations are ongoing.

The New York State Nurses Association, the union representing about 37,000 nurses in the state, including more than 600 at Ellis Medicine, didn't return a request for comment.

The charge was connected to contract talks between the nurses’ union and Ellis. In addition to the charge against employer, picketing in October at the hospital highlighted tensions at the negotiating table.
