After six months of bargaining, our Local 121RN Bargaining Team came to a tentative agreement with management on a new 3-year contract.
Our unity in our strike authorization vote kicked bargaining into high gear over the past month, and the last five or so agreements were signed off on Wednesday, June 27. The contract would move all RNs to their appropriate placement on the wage scale by November 2013, as well as give all RNs a 2 percent across-the-board wage raise in 2013 and 2014. Step increases will continue as in current practice.
Our Bargaining Team is satisfied that this is a fair agreement for 121RN members and recommends a YES vote.
