Just Cause means that RNs are entitled to “due process” for any alleged violations. With Just Cause, if an RN is accused of doing something wrong, management must fully investigate.

In bargaining yesterday we won an important new right: When we transfer to a new position or different department we won’t be on probation, as had been the case.
