CHICAGO (NewsNation Now) — Nurses at a Chicago hospital said they have reached a tentative agreement with its operators after a dayslong strike.
Leaders of the Illinois Nurses Association said the new four-year contract with the University of Illinois Hospital includes a promise to hire 160 more nurses.
The deal also includes a promise of more protective equipment to help treat coronavirus patients.
About 800 nurses went on a seven-day strike last week and returned to work without an agreement.
Union members are set to vote on the deal on Monday.
