L&M hospital workers back afer lockout


NEW LONDON (AP) — Nearly 800 nurses and technicians have returned to work at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital in New London after a four-day strike and lockout.

Employees began entering the hospital after the lockout was lifted at 6:45 a.m. Thursday. They’ll work under the terms of their prior contract while negotiations resume.

Hospital spokesman Mike O’Farrell told The Day of New London that management worked to make a smooth transition between 150 to 250 replacement workers and the returning employees. The replacement workers had cared for patients since the strike began Nov. 27.

Nearly 300 hospital workers gathered for a pep rally and information session with union officials Wednesday at Ocean Beach State Park.

Management decided Tuesday to end the lockout, saying it was in the best interest of patients and the community.
