 Along the shore, nurses at Jersey Shore University Medical Center and Southern Ocean Medical Center and up on the river in Hudson County, healthcare workers at Palisades Medical Center and The Harborage.   They  demanded safe patient limits, livable wages and a workplace free of intimidation.  While walking the picket line workers they urged the community, patients, family members  to call the CEOs of the health system to support their efforts at the bargaining table.
