Lobbying for fair wages, safe staffing, recognition
This year, Lobby Day will take a different form, but PEF nurses will still rally together to bring their message to state legislators.
On May 25, nurses will take the virtual stage from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and highlight the need for wage parity, safe staffing and honoring COVID heroes.
“State nurses must earn what their counterparts in the private sector earn, so that we can address the myriad staffing shortages,” said PEF Interim Nurse Coordinator Gabriel Kristal. “We will call for support and enhancement of staffing legislation, while also pushing to end all hiring freezes of healthcare workers.
“In recognition of the hard work and dedication of PEF nurses during the pandemic, we will urge the state to step up by providing hazard pay for their sacrifice,” Kristal said.
