(C) Ar'eio York Times Service NEW YORK - Hundreds of nommedi- eal workers began returning to work in New York City late Saturday afternoon as they ended their 11-day strike at 57 hospitals and nursing homes by voting overwhelmingly to accept an agreement to submit their contract dispute to binding arbitration. The returning technicians, orderlies, nurses' aides, social workers and kitchen help were welcomed by supervisors and volunteers who had been sweeping corridors, preparing meals and performing other emrgency chores in the longest and largest hospital strike in New York's history. Generally happy, too, were the returning 37,000 workers, who had been without pay during the walkout. "My bills are piling up, and the kids want pocket money, so I'm voting yes," said Alicia Phillip, a nurses' aide, as she left the picket line against the wall of Beekman Downtown Hospital. · * * SIMILAR SENTIMENT was expressed there by Randolph Thomas, a medical technician, who cast his yes vote with the statement, "We've reached, a limit. We need money now." Gratified, also were the families of many elderly as they prepared to bring their parents back to the 14 struck nursing homes from which they had removed them last week. The members of District 1199 of the Na : tional Union of Hospital and Health Care Employes who returned to work Saturday -generally reported on the night shift that started at 4 p.m. The number who came back was not the normal complement, because the hospitals had been forced to sharply curtail no- nemergency surgery and elective admissions. As a result, hospital bed occupancy was decreased, requiring fewer workers. The full complement of workers was not expected to return before Wednesday, according to hospital spokesmen. » * * THE STRIKERS voted 21,348 to 1,060 Saturday morning to accept the arbitration and to end their walkout at the 33 voluntary hospitals, 10 municipal hospitals and 14 nursing homes. They voted outside the hospital facilities where they had been striking. The tentative agreement that ended the strike came Friday night, after 33 hours of continuous negotiations between the union and the League of Voluntary Hospitals, which represented most of the struck institutions.
