Negotiations update

We had our first meeting with management. Both WSNA and CMC exchanged proposals. We introduced proposals regarding patient safety, staffing, wage and benefits to improve recruitment and retention of nurses at CMC. CMC has not provided us with their economic proposals.

Our next scheduled sessions are September 4, 16, and October 14.

In Solidarity,
Your negotiating team: Katrina Rodstedt, Marin Hershey, Yanis Plakos, and Oneida Duran.
