Striking Nurses Call Police To The Picket Line

Striking nurses in South Williamson called Kentucky State Police over the weekend because they say they felt threatened when someone came to the picket line and tore down a sign known as the "Wall Of Shame."

Kathy Ford, President of the Kentucky Nurses Association local 103 says the "Wall Of Shame" is a list of nurses who crossed the picket line and returned to work.

Ford says police referred them to the county attorney's office but she says they do not plan to file a complaint unless it happens again.

    I went back home to Eastern Ky Whitesburg to be exact and seen all these signs out on the side of the road do you all know how crazy this looks I mean strike is fine but to put others down for working is crazy...There are plenty of Nursing jobs in Ky Why are you on union anyways????Go somewere were there is no union if all this means so much to you....I am also sure the ones of you on strike have other means of paying your bills while others that crossed the line and are working may not......If anyone should be on the wall of shame it should be the ones who made the posters because you are trying to bring someone else down for doing what is right for their familys.....To the Nurses who crossed the line I think what you are doing and the support you are showing for your family and patients that even if you dont get everything you probaly deserve from ARH you do care about the real things in life and you have a very big heart for Your communitys May God Bless you all........

    Oh, poor strikers. What about the employees that they've called slanderous, vulgar names and did malicious crimes against them and their families. I've seen both strikes this year and by far the rns are the meanest and the pulblic is getting very frustrated with them.

    Shame on them for not agreeing with the union! Shame on them for wanting to work and pay their bills! How dare they accept the income and benefits offered by their employers! So of course, shame them for not playing along. After all: If enough people refuse to work, surely that will bolster the local economy(?), thus creating more revenue for the region(?), and then they'll be compensated at the same rate as those who live and work in areas that actually HAVE economies... Right? Ridiculous. If you want paid like others get paid in more prosperous places, move to a more prosperous place. Mass, public whining and ridiculing colleagues that are trying to feed their kids doesn't help your cause.
