Compromise needed in labor dispute

To the Journal editor:

The success of UP Health System is vitally important for the health of our citizens and Marquette County’s economic future.

We believe it is extremely important that a fair and just compromise be reached between the hopstital and the nurses. The longer this dispute lingers on, the bigger the negative impact it will have on our community.

We believe the nurses need to be treated fairly and the hospital needs to have the flexibility to successfully manuever through the ever-changing health care system.

For the welfare of the nurses, the UP Health System and our community, let’s get this contract resolved.
