On Monday, March 18, we were able to meet with federal mediators for our first mediation session. Much of the day was invested in discussing our positions with the mediators. However, both sides were able to pass package proposals through the mediators.
After a highly energizing rally at John Dam Plaza, attended by hundreds of nurses and concerned community members, we were deeply disappointed by the lack of movement by the administration. Our bargaining team remains committed to negotiating a fair contract that will keep nurses and patients safe.
Right now, it is crucial that our team hears from you as we determine our next course of action. Plan on attending this VERY important discussion with our negotiating team and Chief Negotiator Dave Campbell. An update will be sent when we have a location that is large enough for us.
When: April 4 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. and 7:30 – 9 p.m.
Where: Location TBD #
Our team would like to extend a huge thank you to all the nurses and community members that came out to support Kadlec nurses in fighting for safe patient care.
