On Dec. 29, 2020, your contract negoti­a­tion team met with hospital manage­ment for the first time. We gave them our opening proposal which was based on your feedback provided to us in the contract negoti­a­tion survey. Our proposal is fair and calls on the hospital to make changes that attract and retain quality and committed nurses. Issues such as staffing and workplace violence dominated our initial discussion.

Our next meeting with hospital admin­is­tra­tion is set for Jan. 22, 2020.
