NYACK - Workers at Nyack Hospital say the hospital has not paid into their health care or pension funds since their contract expired at the end of April.

The workers rallied outside the hospital on Tuesday. They say the demonstration is just a rally -- not a strike or walkout -- to show the community how important their contract is.

The union is comprised of lab technicians, dieticians, environmental specialists and nursing assistants. The workers say the hospital has not made payments to their benefits fund for two and a half months, which the hospital is required to do under the old agreement. The workers fear that if the hospital doesn't make payments, their coverage will lapse and they will lose their benefits.

A Nyack Hospital spokesperson tells News 12 that the hospital is negotiating in good faith with the workers and will continue to do so until a new deal is reached.
