Negotiations continue on nurses’ contract

Print More

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.
