UVM Medical Center nurses spent two days striking last week. We'll hear about where negotiations between the union and hospital now stand.

The nurses union at UVM Medical Center went on a two-day strike last week after their contract expired and no new agreement was reached. We'll hear from both sides about the negotiations taking place on a new three-year contract.
Eileen Whalen, president and chief operating officer of the University of Vermont Medical Center, and Laurie Aunchman, president of the Vermont Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals, discuss where progress has been made on the contract and what major obstacles remain.
