Members with the Stillwater Center recently stood united to bargain and ratify a new contract agreement. Nurses with the Stillwater Center have been working bravely during the COVID19 pandemic to provide the best possible care.
To have a Union means to have a voice and in the last year, the nurses also spoke out about needed protective equipment and COVID19 protocols.
The nurses voted unanimously for the new contract agreement, which provides for a $600 ratification bonus and an annual wage increase for each of the next three years. The nurses also negotiated having Juneteenth as a paid holiday, as an alternative to Columbus Day. The new contract also includes updated language that may strengthen Union representation.
Together, Union members with the Stillwater Center and across the region are standing strong amid the COVID19 pandemic for fair wages and quality care.
