Paul Goldberg, Assistant Administrator of Labor Relations at the Oregon Nurses Association, said, "We won many nursing industry standard pay practices, such as one-and-a-half times pay for consecutive weekends worked and one-and-a-half times pay for work from a low census standby.
The adoption of these standards will serve to retain nurses and improve patient staffing levels".
The new contract also includes job security provisions in the form of seniority bumping rights, a grievance and arbitration dispute resolution process, nursing practice provisions, a dedicated workshop nurse education fund, and a union security provision.
continued, "Everyone is pleased that the lives of Mercy's
nurses and their families and patients, and the health of the entire Roseburg community, have been permanently enhanced by our collective efforts.
