Nurses and other professional staff at Temple University Hospital have voted to ratify a contract proposal, ending a monthlong walkout.


The Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals said last Wednesday night that 1,075 of the 1,500 members took part in three ratification votes during the day and 97 percent were in favor of the pact with Temple University Hospital.


Nurses and other staff went on strike March 31 in a dispute over wages, benefits and work rules. Their contract expired Sept. 30. Temple had hired about 850 temporary employees to replace the striking workers.
