Bargaining Update #5

Dear Nursing Team Members,

Today we held our fifth collective bargaining session with the Union that represents our nurses (NNU). The UCMC team shared counterproposals on Orientation Procedure for New Employees, Workplace Violence Prevention and Leaves of Absence.

The NNU passed proposals and/or counterproposals on Preparation of Schedule, Absences Due to Workplace Injury, Bereavement and Credit for Experience.

We have confirmed several additional dates in late October through early December bargaining sessions. We continue to work in good faith toward providing transparency and achieving a fair and equitable contract with NNU.

This is a diligent process that takes time, and we are looking forward to our next contract negotiation session is scheduled on October 30th, 2023.

Please reach out to the ACNO nursing leadership team if you have any questions about bargaining.

Thank you,

Renee Pucik-Maisura MSN, RN,

Executive Director, Perioperative & Procedural Services
