St. Joseph Contract Ratified!

December 20, 2011

During contract ratification voting on Dec. 6 and 7, the majority of members said YES to a new contract that contains wage increases or lump sum payments based on an RN’s base wages. The new agreement with Providence management includes:

Thank you to all who participated in this year’s contract negotiations. We have a new contract that protects our wages and benefits for another three years.

A great big THANK YOU to our Bargaining Team for working long hours and making some very challenging decisions to do what is best for the majority of RNs at Providence St. Joseph!

Please take the time to say thank you to those team members: Shelley Vickrey, Stella Kennedy, Eileen Kenny, Kevin MacVane and Brenda Blanco.

* Except those nurses who are scheduled to receive a step increase, and per diem RNs will receive a 1 percent lump sum payment in 2011 and 2012. RNs whose pay rates are above the wage scale in 2012 or 2013 will not receive a wage increase.
