Natchaug Hospital employees protest proposed plan to cut pensions

Roughly 40 hospital employees at Mansfield Center, Conn.-based Natchaug Hospital protested Feb. 15 outside the facility, according to a Daily Campus report.

The employees were protesting the hospital's proposed plan to drop employee pensions in favor of a 401(k) plan. The proposed plan would affect more than 180 employees, including staff in the dietary, housekeeping, kitchen, maintenance, mental health and reception units, according to the report.

Hospital administers have deemed the change as a cost-saving measure.
