Washington Hospital and the California Nurses Association (CNA) have reached a tentative agreement on a new, four-year contract. The agreement, pending ratification by CNA’s membership and approval from the Washington Township Health Care District Board of Directors, is retroactive to July 2015 and will provide compensation to Washington Hospital’s RNs that is competitive with the market.
“We are pleased to have come to this fair and equitable agreement with CNA,” said Nancy Farber, chief executive officer of Washington Hospital Healthcare System. “This agreement is reflective of the Hospital’s patient first ethic by ensuring we can continue to competitively recruit and retain the most talented and experienced caregivers.”
Details will be shared at information sessions about the tentative agreement that union representatives will be scheduling and will occur before a ratification vote.
The Washington Township Health Care District Board of Directors will have the opportunity to consider the agreement for approval at its Board meeting on June 8.
