As of 11 p.m. Thursday night, the nurses union at Sparrow Hospital said it has reached a tentative agreement with the hospital's management group.

The Michigan Nurses Association made the announcement on its Facebook page.

A union spokeswoman says no details of that agreement covering Sparrow's 2300 are being released.

Earlier this week a handful of them hit the picket line to draw attention to what they say is Sparrow's unsafe nurse-to-patient ratio.

Neither side would tell us what that ratio is.
