Our Union contract expires on March 31, 2011. While that may seem far away, it’s time to get started on bargaining a new contract. Our Union has requested dates from the hospital to begin bargaining, and our Bargaining Team has begun going through bargaining surveys turned in by members. Thank you to all who participated by filling out a survey.
“This contract will affect all of us, so we want to be as inclusive as possible. All members need to keep our contract negotiations top-of-mind and help in any way that you can, whether that’s by wearing union colors and buttons, talking to your co-workers, or meeting with our Bargaining Team once a month.” Jim Owen, RN, Tarzana Chapter President
Our Bargaining Team will be holding membership meetings the third Thursday of each month to keep us updated and allow us to give input along the way. Make sure to attend these meetings if you have language you would like to see changed in our contract.
Our Bargaining Team is already working hard to negotiate a fair contract for Tarzana RNs and Professionals. What can you do to help? If you would like to get involved by becoming a Contract Action Team (CAT) member, helping distribute leaflets or participating on a committee, contact your Bargaining Team member or Union Representative.
