SPNN Bargaining Update #9
Sharp Professional Nurses Network
NURSES UNITED FOR A BETTER SHARP
“With a very heavy heart, I am learning that Sharp HealthCare does not value its nurses. I realize that all the way to the top of Sharp management I am undervalued and unappreciated. I keep asking myself, ‘Why do I still work here?’ The only answer I have left is: for my patients.
“Please hear us when we say enough is enough. If these negotiations remain at a standstill; if Sharp continues to deny us fair compensation, refuses to bring our wages up to market value, and continues to try to silence our voices, I have but just one question remaining:
“Why do you feel we are not worth this?”
- Management hasn’t budged from their initial wage proposal for full-time/part-time RNs
- Management proposed lower across-the-board wage increases for per diem RNs
To address issues of recruitment and retention, and to ensure quality care at Sharp, RNs continue to stand united on our four key issues:
- Compensation - We are committed to our proposal of 20% in year 1, 6% in year 2, and 6% in year 3.
- Representation - We continue to fight limitations on access to our medical centers by our staff representatives.
- Union membership - Union security ensures our collective voices are protected and we are able to best advocate for our patients and our profession.
- Cancellation - We continue to have several major disagreements on cancellation, including the order, mandatory on-call, and no limits on how often.
