We are happy to announce that because of the solidarity we have shown through petitions and other actions, we’ve been able to come to an agreement with the Hospital on a one year contract extension. As part of the extension, all nurses will receive a $5 per hour increase in their base rate of pay, and all other members will receive a $3 per hour increase effective on the first full pay period after September 4th. Additionally, all members will receive a 2.25% increase in the first full pay period after March 1st of next year.
We still have a lot of work to do to improve working conditions in the hospital, but this is a big step in getting us closer to the pay we deserve. Let’s continue to fight with unity to improve conditions both for us and our patients.
