LISTEN: Shirley Leung Discusses Tufts Medical Center Nurses Strike

July 12, 2017

Nurses at Boston's Tufts Medical Center are on strike today after contract talks broke down. It's the first time nurses have been on strike in Boston in 31 years. 
Tufts Medical Center is the city's smallest teaching hospital and has sometimes struggled to find its place in a city with a wealth of world-renowned hospitals.
WGBH News Contributor and Boston Globe columnist Shirley Leung spoke with WGBH's All Things Considered host Barbara Howard about the strike.
