On March 26, we had our second day of negoti­a­tions using the Interest Based Bargaining (IBB) model. We had collab­o­ra­tive discus­sions and are making good progress.

We addressed vacation, transi­tion for nurses going into pool positions, PTO cash out and notifi­ca­tion (in article 8.4).

We reached an agree­ment to resolve our payroll griev­ance that was sched­uled to go to arbitra­tion. More infor­ma­tion coming on this.

We agreed to extend the contract through May 31.

Our next dates for negoti­a­tions are April 5, 16, and 29 and May 16 and 17.

Your team members are:

Susan Chapman, Judy McBride, Samantha Goff, Crystal Clabaugh, Stefanie Gates, Lorna Sebas­tian, Michele Rae, Amanda Cortes, Nick Jackson and Paul Molenaar
