‘Leave’: Berkshire Medical Center nurses turned away following strike

PITTSFIELD – The nurses have been locked out.

At 7 a.m. Oct. 4, after 24 hours straight of striking out front of Berkshire Medical Center, the hospital’s nurses were not let back inside the building to begin working their scheduled shifts.

That morning, a throng of some 75 nurses and staff approached the hospital’s entrance in silence and were met by hospital administration about 100 feet from the door.

“We want to be inside,” Amber VanBramer, a registered nurse and contract bargaining committee member, said before heading towards the door.

“We would like to get back to work,” Mark Brodeur, a post-anesthesia care nurse, said.
