Contract negotiations are continuing today between the nurses’ union and Fletcher Allen Health Care. Fletcher Allen says the two sides have tentatively agreed on 12 of the union’s non-financial proposals.
The two sides have been negotiating staffing ratios and salary packages for more than five months. Last month the nurses filed a 30-day notice warning that they may go on strike.
Nurses have spoken out against hospital management in recent weeks. They have accused the leadership of making up a dire financial picture to thwart the union’s bargaining efforts.
