Tentative Agreement Reached In Nurses' Contract Dispute


Provi­dence Sacred Heart and its nurses have reached a tenta­tive labor agreement.

The pact includes key provi­sions sought by nurses, including enhanced language about staffing levels and workplace violence preven­tion and limits on the employ­er’s ability to raise premiums. It also preserves impor­tant health benefits, provides wage increases of 10% over the duration of the three-year contract and a ratifi­ca­tion bonus of $2,100, prorated for part-time nurses.
