More Progress at the Chino Bargaining Table
Bargaining Update #5: June 28, 2012
This week, we reached agreement with management on seven more issues and our contract is now nearly 60% complete.
The RN Bargaining Team and Management went back and forth negotiating proposals on:
• Discipline/Corrective Action
• Leaves of Absence
We have received information from management on policies and pay practices regarding education, floating, differentials, wage rates and benefit levels. In meetings with Chino RNs this week, there was much discussion of how CVMC's conditions compare to other hospitals.
When we go back to bargaining on July 24th we will present our wage, benefit and patient care proposals. We have also requested that Prime Healthcare’s Director of Corporate Benefits attend so we can discuss some of the issues that have been raised regarding problems with the existing plans.
We Have the Right to Wear Our Pins
This week at the Bargaining Table we informed Prime that they could not deny our right to wear UNAC/UHCP pins.
Since we already wear different types of pins on our badges, Prime cannot discriminate against union pins.
This is the same legal basis we used to win the right to post our literature in the facility.
After much discussion, Prime agreed that we have the right to wear our pins.
Come to bargaining on July 24 to hear our proposal on wages and benefits. Sign up online or with a Bargaining Team member for at least 2 sessions.
Dates: July 24–July 26, August 7 & 16
Times: 9AM–Noon & 1–5PM - Attend both sessions!
