Providence St. Vincent Nurses Ratify Clinical Ladder and Resource Nurse Agreements

Nurses at St. Vincent Medical Center voted to accept both tentative agreements at an all day vote February 24. Clinical Ladder was ratified by 67% of those voting, and 85% voted to accept the Resource Nurse agreement.

"Resource nurses are excited to be joining the rest of the St. Vincent nurses in the contract protections” said Carol Bendinelli, Resource nurse and ONA Officer at Large. "It was a long and challenging process to achieve representation, and we’re looking forward to having the benefits of seniority, grievance representation and predictable compensation.”

Resource nurses and the Medical Center will now begin the process of placing Resource Nurses on the contract wage scale, and calculating seniority dates. This process will be completed by May 24, with any pay increases retroactive to January 1, 2010. Stay tuned for more updates as this process gets underway.
