AHMC management added insult to injury with their wage proposal to our Garfield Medical Center and Greater El Monte Community Hospital Union Bargaining Team on Monday, April 6.
- Management cut our medical benefits significantly without negotiating with our Union.
- The management Bargaining Team outright rejected our Union Bargaining Team’s modest contract proposals.
- Management’s initial wage proposal would decimate our wage scale by decreasing the difference between steps from 5 percent to 3 percent, ensuring that only newer RNs would ever get a step increase. Management tried to look good by proposing across-the-board increases of 2 percent for those at or above the new scale, and up to a 6 or 8 percent increase (depending on which contract year) to bring those below scale up to the new scale rates. However, very few RNs would be below scale with management’s proposal.
