Nurses Federation Threatens: No School Nurses


The Nurses Federation held an emergency meeting, Sunday, after about 100 nurses employed by a personnel company were informed that they would be fired, effective August 1st. The nurses were fired an average of five times in the past three years as a result of their being transferred to different personnel agencies.

The union is demanding that the nurses be immediately absorbed into the civil service. Federation Chairwoman Ilana Cohen told those at the meeting, "If the school nurses are not absorbed into the civil service, starting August 1st there will be no school nurses anymore and service will not be provided to the student."
