Nurses at Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield have been working without a contract for almost two years, but there are reports they may be willing to concede one big point, if the hospital assures them there will be adequate staffing.
Kathy Cimini has been a nurse at BMC for more than 40 years, and says they're willing to take a 20% increase on their health insurance premiums if there's a guarantee of safe staffing.
Nurses staged a rally outside the hospital on Thursday.
More contract talks are scheduled for later this month.
