We met for session nine with the admin­is­tra­tion on Dec. 14. We are holding strong on our position to maintain our PTO, safe staffing and workplace violence language. Our negoti­a­tion team has spent a consid­er­able amount of time reviewing Providence’s PTO proposal and it is a consid­er­able takeaway.

We under­stand that there are still a lot of questions about the PTO proposal and what is meant by block breaks.” Our team will be putting together our own fact sheet to help clarify these issues. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to our negoti­ating team with specific questions.

In Solidarity,

Your Negoti­a­tion Team:

Jacob Garcia (CDU), Martha Galvez (Birth Center), Vanessa Douglas (ICU), Toni Ledridge (PAS), Kathy Peot (Resource), Marianne Sturte­vant (OR), Meri Bukovinsky (CDU), Joyce McMurphy (NICU), (Anthony) Tony Jones (Cath Lab) and Joy Barclay (DI)
