Update on Tuesday’s Negotiations with NNOC/NNU
I want to let you know the bargaining teams from UCMC and the NNOC/NNU met throughout Tuesday with the federal mediator in a continuing attempt to reach agreement on a new contract that would avert the nursing strike called by the union for Friday.
There was no progress to report as the talks recessed early this evening, but both sides agreed to return to the negotiating table with the federal mediator on Wednesday. I will continue to keep you updated on the progress of the discussions.
A quick reminder that we have town halls scheduled for noon Wednesday in P-117 and noon Thursday in L-168 to update you on preparations for the strike. Thank you for your continued professionalism and focus on our patients during this difficult period.
