ALBANY - More than 3,200 registered nurses in the Albany area are now receiving more than $1,000 each.

That's according to the nurses' union, SEIU.    

It's part of a class action lawsuit that alleged five local hospitals violated federal antitrust laws by conspiring to suppress nurse wages.

The hospitals included Albany Medical Center, Ellis Health, Northeast Health, Seton Health and St. Peter's Health.
