We ended bargaining this evening with management giving us another proposal they want us to vote on by 10/15. We have no interest in putting this out to a vote. Here are some of the key differences:
- No retro pay.
- This proposal has hundreds of lump sums in it (in every bargaining unit at all 3 Hospitals).
- Concessions on prescription drugs and co-pays.
- Ratios in the staffing proposals don't make sense.
- Even small items are unresolved, like ECMO On-Call. They're proposing ER On-Call at Mercy that we cannot agree to.
