Union Demands Retro Pay Increase Checks

Management has implemented RN raises as required by our Union contract. However, they have not issued payment for the wage increase to the retroactive date agreed upon. Our Union is pushing management to issue these checks immediately.

Management continues to reject our proposal on In-House Registry. They prefer to spend about HALF A MILLION DOLLARS in outside registry costs rather than accept a more cost-effective IHR process.

Sept. 29 Bargaining Update

Monterey Park Hospital management was not prepared for bargaining. They returned to the table after a 9-day break without a response to our proposals on wages, shift differentials, etc. They submitted two counter-proposals on non-economics, and rejected our In-House Registry proposal, which would have created cost-effectiveness, patient care continuity, and coverage for staffing shortages using Staff RNs instead of Registry RNs. 

Sept. 14 Bargaining Update

Our SEIU 121RN Bargaining Team representing Registered Nurses at Monterey Park Hospital came to tentative agreements (TA) today with management on the following articles:

Although our Bargaining Team has experienced some challenges, they were able to secure the following Articles: Job Security, Bargaining Unit Work, Savings Clause, and Notices.
