On April 5, we had our third day of negoti­a­tions using the Interest Based Bargaining (IBB) model. We had collab­o­ra­tive discus­sions and are making good progress.

We addressed the Staffing Committee, work week, SANE and workplace violence.

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

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