Rally Held at Washington Park in Support of Albany Med Nurses

Nurses at Albany Med are looking for community support as they continue contract negotiations with the hospital.

About 2,000 voted to unionize last April, and talks with the hospital have been on-going since last August.

They staged a rally on Thursday at nearby Washington Park.

As those contract talks continue, about 1,000 other hospital employees are looking to unionize as well.

Right now, they say they're just trying to make people aware of the benefits of affiliating with SEIU local 1199.

A vote would have to happen at some point in the future.
