Lawrence + Memorial Hospital Strike
Joann Regan, of Salem, yells to passing cars, "We're on strike for you!" while walking the picket line in front of Lawrence and Memorial Hospital in New London Wednesday. About 800 nurses and technicians walked off the job after contract negotiations broke down on Tuesday. The striking union workers are upset about the outsourcing of services.
