Stuck in the Middle of Feud

I find it troubling that RI’s largest hospital -- part of RI’s largest employer altogether -- operating as a non-profit organization with a mandate to serve the community, can have the largest division of its workforce walk off the job due to a dispute and neither side is obligated to disclose to the public why it is happening. All our lives are put at risk because two groups aren’t able to agree with one another. The public deserves greater transparency. We deserve to know the contract or disputed terms to which each side said no.
