Our Chief Negotiator to management => "Come prepared next time!"

October 24, 2020

Our Bargaining Team is working hard to make things better. Management continues to offer nothing but reductions, take-aways and stalling when it comes to the important improvements that need to happen now to protect patients and staff.

At RCH, the hospital dismantled a critical  leadership structure during a pandemic, eliminating our Charge Nurses. What a fiasco! At all three hospitals, we continue to be out of ratio in countless units. RNs still go entire shifts without a sip of water. Staff is still falling ill. PPE is still not adequate. And in the meantime, we’re STILL waiting for meaningful responses from management on:

  • Safe meal and break relief that ensures patients have enough Nurses on duty at all times
  • Adequate, sanitary PPE throughout the hospital without re-use conditions...and more!

This is the strongest action we can take right now to support our Bargaining Team.
