99% Pomona Valley RN Members Say YES to New Contract!

Ninety-nine percent of nurses voting at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center ratified their new contract with hospital management on Dec. 18. Congratulations!

RNs Reach Tentative Contract Agreement with PVHMC!

After nearly 24 hours of bargaining Dec. 15 and into the wee hours of Dec. 16, the SEIU 121RN Bargaining Team for RNs at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center reached a tentative agreement (TA) with management on a new Union contract. The new agreement includes maintenance of free healthcare for 10+ year RNs and a 13.25% wage increase over the four years of the contract! A contract ratification vote will be held Friday, Dec. 18.

RN Respite is a Matter of Safety

We became RNs because we want to provide quality care for people during their time of need. We love our jobs, but there are countless days on-call in a month where we work until 4 a.m. and then have to be back at the start of shift, having had less than two hours of sleep. All RNs should get eight hours of rest before another shift. We’re standing together to fight for respite time. You can count on us to be on the strike line. 

PVHMC Nurses Deliver Strike Notice to Management

Today, we put Management on notice that we will strike over Christmas and New Year’s because of countless violations of federal labor law and in protest of Management’s demand to take away benefits we have had for more than 30 years. 

Sue Speaks on Management’s Takeaway Proposals

It was such a joy to see so many familiar faces, as well as new faces at the informational picket last week. The nurses participated in the strike vote in record numbers. It brought back memories of some of my favorite moments in this job when Pomona nurses stood together and took a stand against the unjust proposals presented by management to our Union. I have such respect for the Bargaining Team in standing firm on free health benefits for nurses that have reached their 10-year anniversary.

95% of PVHMC Nurses Vote YES!

To Authorize the Bargaining Team to Call a Strike, if Necessary. A strike will only be called if all other measures have been exhausted. Your showing of strength on the picket line was a true sign of solidarity, and the bargaining team will take this mandate from the nurses to the bargaining table as we continue to fight to protect healthcare, spousal coverage, and respite.

‘Sue Speaks’ on Contract Negotiations

We are all aware that our Union contract with Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center management expires at the end of this month. Your Bargaining Team of Union registered nurses has been at the negotiation table for multiple sessions compromising on …

Is Management Listening? We Think Not.

During negotiations on Friday, Nov 20, our Bargaining Team told management that, while we are open to bargaining all parts of the contract, we will not accept a take-away of the free health insurance premiums for 10+ years employees. Nurses have had this benefit for more than three decades.

Strike Authorization Vote & Info Picket Scheduled for Dec. 1

Our next contract determines wages, benefits and conditions for the term of the contract. Voting yes does not guarantee a strike; it gives our Bargaining Team power to call a strike if they deem it necessary based on management’s refusal to show respect for our years of dedication and service. A strike would only be called after all other means have been exhausted.

Hospital Refuses to Budge on Changes to Healthcare

Our Bargaining Team came out of three days of negotiations this week with management sticking to what we heard last week: They won’t show respect to RNs through healthcare insurance or steps on our wage scale. Not only does management not want to add steps to the wage scale to recognize years of dedication, but they want nurses with 10 or more years of service to start paying for their health insurance.
