Negotiation update

Your negotiations team met on Wednesday, Feb. 6 for our first day of negotiations. While we have not agreed on any economic issues, we have made numerous tentative agreements on a variety of other contract issues. We look forward to our next meeting on Friday, Feb. 15 and will update you after day two.

In solidarity,

Contract unanimously ratified

Thank you Ocean Beach Hospital nurses for turning out to vote and unanimously ratifying the tentative agreement. And a special thank you to all of the nurses who generously donated PTO to the team. The employer does not compensate the bargaining team, so your donations definitely helped to supplement the PTO they had to use to represent you all at the table. United we Bargained and Won!

Contract vote

After seven (7) days at the table, your Negotiation Team has worked diligently to ensure that they negotiated the very best tentative agreement (T.A.) for all of the nurses at Ocean Beach Hospital. The team is recommending a Yes Voteon the contract. Please plan on attending the vote where a summary of all the changes and enhancements will be provided along with the actual “Redline” of the specific language changes. The new T.A. includes across-the-board wage increases of 3%, 3%, and 3% over the life of the three year contract as well as No Changes to low census or standby language! Stay tuned for moredetails; but until then do plan on attending the vote.

The Vote:

  • When = Wednesday, July 27th
  • Time = 1700 until 2000
  • Where = Ocean Beach Hospital Education Room

In Solidarity,
Mara Kieval, WSNA Nurse Representative
