Albany Medical Center Nurses are renewing calls for hospital management to come back to the bargaining table to discuss a new contract.

The nurses claim almost 500 of their colleagues have left AMC due to hospital conditions including forcing nurses to re-use masks. Tonia Bazel works in the COVID ward and alleges nurses are being bullied by management.

"Calling people into the office and questioning them. I got a phone call from my manager yesterday, on the phone, trying to divide and conquer us is their plan."

The nurses are planning a 1-day strike December 1st. Hospital officials say there will be no interruption in patient care.
