We spent a majority of time in negoti­a­tions on Dec. 14 talking about the indeci­pher­able pay stubs that you receive. Manage­ment claims they have no control over how those stubs read. The payroll system is across the CHI facilities.

Supple­mental Part-time and Per Diem require­ments were discussed at length without reaching an agree­ment. We did a lot of talking about STAFFING and how to attract and retain nurses. Management’s point of view is that we now have a law that addresses staffing so we do not need language in the contract, but we need language in the contract that addresses staffing on all of the units.

Impor­tant dates:

  • Our next meeting is Tuesday, Dec. 18. Please wear your blue pins and buttons as a show of support for the negoti­ating team.
  • Dec. 21, we will be having an organizing meeting at the RED ELM from noon until 2 p.m. This is a family friendly event and everyone is welcome! We hope to see you there.

In unity,

Your Negoti­ating Team
