SUNY Downstate workers protest possible hospital cuts

BROOKLYN - Workers from SUNY Downstate Medical Center took to the streets Monday to protest possible layoffs.

The employees rallied as hospital officials met to discuss a restructuring plan that could result as many as 1,000 job losses.

Protesters argue that the plan threatens vital health care services for thousands of residents and would have a negative impact on central Brooklyn's already struggling economy.
