Corona Bargaining Update: May 21, 2015

Progress Made As Our Team Pushes Forward

Your Corona RN Bargaining Team met with UHS-Corona management on May 20-21 to continue negotiating your first collective bargaining agreement.

A tentative agreement was reached on a proposal titled “Mutual Courtesy and Anti-Harassment.” In this article, UHS-Corona agreed to encourage all employees and physicians to perform in a courteous manner when interacting with fellow employees, patients, and the public. This article also requires the hospital to provide a work environment free from discrimination and unlawful harassment. The language protects an employee from continued harassment or retaliation as a consequence of the reporting of harassment.

Your Corona RN Bargaining Team also exchanged proposals with management regarding education benefits. Our goal is to reach an agreement that guarantees improvements in education benefits.

UHS-Corona management proposed an attendance article that was punitive to registered nurses. Your RN Bargaining Team is working hard to secure reasonable contract language that meets the needs of our RN members, the hospital, and the patients we serve.
