Bargaining Update: June 17, 2011
PARKVIEW REGISTERED NURSES ASSOCIATION
EXCITEMENT in the PARKVIEW BOARDROOM!!
Parkview RN members turned out in force to support our bargaining team's proposal for fair wage increases, improvements in health care, and other economic improvements. Over 30 RN’s, from units throughout the hospital, wearing UNAC scrubs and ‘The TIME is NOW!” stickers came to support a fair contract.
Members heard firsthand management’s proposal, which still doesn't address some of our key issues. After years of sacrifice on our part, we are disappointed Management hasn't stepped up to the plate and recognized the dedication and commitment we have made to the community and the hospital.
Our grand turnout at negotiations delivered a strong message of PRNA unity and the importance of negotiating a contract worthy of the patience and sacrifice made by the members over the last few years.
Now the work begins! Our next bargaining session is July 14. In the meantime, we will be providing you with the details of the union's proposal and your continued action and involvement will be necessary for us to win a fair contract.
Many thanks to members who invested their time in creating a better future for YOU!!
THE TIME IS NOW!!
