SPNN Bargaining Update #17
Sharp Professional Nurses Network
NURSES UNITED FOR A BETTER SHARP
November 22, 2016
Your RN bargaining team met with management on November 22. Some progress was made at the bargaining table, but no significant movement was made on our core bargaining priorities. We will continue to meet with management as the week progresses. Please stay tuned for updates after each session.
IMPORTANT ULP STRIKE INFO
UNAC/UHCP provided Sharp with the required 10-day notice that our unfair labor practice strike (ULP strike) would commence on November 28 at 7:00 am.
You DO NOT need to report to work at 6:30 am on November 28 to turn in your badge.
You DO NOT need to report at 7:00 am if you are striking and are not scheduled to work before 7:00 am on 11/28/16.
All bargaining unit RNs are protected by the National Labor Relations Act in your efforts to strike in protest of Sharp’s repeated violations of federal labor law.
REMEMBER: You are standing up for your patients, your community, and your coworkers. Sharp management is the party responsible for placing us in the position where we have to protect our patients, our values, our credibility, and our colleagues. Sharp refuses to engage with us in good faith bargaining to seriously address chronic understaffing and the current retention and recruitment crisis.
