A union representing thousands of New York City nurses is threatening to send them out on strike at one of the nation's busiest hospitals, even as it reached a deal for a new contract at another big medical center across town.

The New York State Nurses Association said Wednesday that it had tentatively settled contract negotiations with The Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan, averting a strike pending a ratification vote.     

But it also gave formal notice that it may call a strike at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx if negotiations over a new contract for nurses there remain unsettled in 10 days.

The union represents about 2,000 nurses at the hospital.     

Previously, the union also reached agreement for a contract covering nurses at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center.
