Nurses union rejects concessions, more layoffs loom

The nurses union has rejected concession with Western Connecticut Health Network.  Danbury and New Milford Hospital officials were seeking the concessions as part of an overall reduction in staff and spending because of a $30-million cut in state funding. 


The concessions included overtime payment adjustments and getting rid of differentials of evening and weekend shifts.  Hospital officials previously said if the concessions didn't come through, 25 people would have to be laid off. 


In all, 116 positions were being eliminated at the two hospitals.
