RRMC nurses union rejects changes to pension

Rutland Herald, November 16, 2005

Robert Manning, a lawyer for the union, said the nurses voted against the measure Tuesday by a "substantial margin" but declined to give specific numbers citing fears of retaliation.

"In a democratic action, the nurses have expressed their displeasure at the hospital taking away the defined benefit (pension) plan and replacing it with a lesser pension plan," he said. ... RRMC
