On Nov. 5, 2019 your contract negoti­a­tion team met with hospital manage­ment for the 2nd time. We made some progress and received the hospi­tal’s proposal on non-economics issues. Tenta­tive agree­ments were reached on language regarding charge nurse orien­ta­tion, rest between shifts, new employee orien­ta­tion and deletion of inter­mit­tent break language. Your team expects to receive the employer’s economic proposal at the next negoti­a­tion session.

Our next meeting with hospital manage­ment is set for Nov. 18.

We have sched­uled a local unit meeting on Dec. 5 from 5:30 — 8:30 p.m. in Confer­ence Room C to get your feedback!

The meeting is being conducted on a drop-in basis, so stop by anytime to get an in-person negoti­a­tion update!

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Nurses Speak event on Nov. 6! State Legis­la­tors Blake and Chapman were very appre­cia­tive of the discus­sion with the nurses who attended.
