Contract Ratification Vote Set for Feb. 3 for Los Robles Members

January 30, 2015

After a 12-hour bargaining session with management on Jan. 29, our SEIU 121RN Bargaining Team for members at Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center reached a tentative agreement (TA) on a new union contract.

The new contract includes across-the-board raises for everyone, retroactive to Sept. 28, 2014, and a new 10-year step on the wage scale!

Come out and vote on Feb. 3. If you’re off work that day, make sure to stop in and cast your vote!

Our Bargaining Team is satisfied that this is a fair agreement for 121RN members and recommends a YES vote.

“It’s been a long process. They’ve made movement, we’ve made movement. We now have a 10-year step increase and some avenues to pursue regarding staffing that we didn’t have before.”
