Bargaining Session #13

Dear UCMC Nurse Colleagues:

Today we held our 13th bargaining session with the NNU. Both sides continued talking about the following:

  • Overtime
  • Nurse Weekend Bonus Pay
  • Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Side Letter
  • The Union passed a new Time & Attendance Side Letter
  • We reached a Tentative Agreement (TA) on Holiday Rotation in the OR’s

Back-and-forth discussions are ongoing, and we continue to work towards middle ground.

We look forward to bargaining again tomorrow, December 20th, to accomplish as much as we can before the Holidays. We have the following future bargaining dates scheduled:

January 9, 17, 18, 22, and 30.

Please visit to learn about initial economic offers, our tuition proposals, and the tentative agreements that have been reached so far.
