  • New York, NY
  • (June 05, 2023)

The Mount Sinai Health System is committed to providing the best possible working environments, wages and benefits for our valued residents at Mount Sinai Morningside and Mount Sinai West. We continue to negotiate in good faith with the Committee of Interns and Residents (CIR) union in hopes of averting a strike. On Wednesday, May 31, we offered CIR a salary package equal to those the union has accepted at other New York City hospitals. We remain confident a resolution can be reached, and our next negotiating session is Tuesday, June 6. However, we are prepared for any potential staffing changes to ensure patients and families receive the highest quality care under all circumstances. The care of our patients is our top priority and will do everything possible to minimize any inconvenience.
