As your Bargaining Team, we have started negotiating our new contract with management. We submitted initial non-economic priorities on Friday, August 15. Management is reviewing our proposals and will respond next week.
Our Union proposed (among other issues):
- Time limits on investigations and disciplines
- Language to improve force-flexing and call-off order
We also improved language governing the RN and management committee that determines patient acuity.
Next bargaining dates: Tuesday, Aug. 19 Wednesday, Aug. 20
We will keep you updated on progress throughout negotiations.
