Local 39 Rescinds Strike Notice; Will Vote on Last, Best and Final Offer

While the data shows that the Hospital’s Last, Best and Final offer to Local 39 would place its members at the top of the market in terms of compensation, the Union’s negotiators indicated that they were disappointed in the proposal.  They plan to put the Hospital’s offer to a vote of its members, without the Union’s recommendation, on Wednesday, Oct. 5.  On a positive note, the Union rescinded its strike notice, that would have had its members on the picket line shortly after the current agreement expired on Friday, Sept. 30.

The Hospital’s bargaining team looks forward to the Union’s members accepting the Hospital’s Last, Best and Final offer on Wednesday.
