Board of Directors Approve Ratified Contract with CNA

The Washington Township Health Care District Board of Directors approved a new four-year contract with the California Nurses Association at its May 8 meeting. CNA members voted overwhelmingly to ratify the tentative agreement during a vote held Friday, May 3. The agreement provides CNA members with wage increases of 22.5 percent over the course of four years to align with the market.

“The Board’s action supports our efforts to remain competitive in the labor market as we look to the future and the critical initiatives we are pursuing to grow and sustain our mission for another 65 years,” said Kimberly Hartz, chief executive officer of Washington Hospital Healthcare System. “We are pleased that our nurses ratified the agreement so that we can continue recruiting and retaining caregivers who uphold our Patient First Ethic to deliver high-quality, evidence-based care.”
