ONA Settles Two Arbitrations -Multnomah County and Providence Seaside

The Multnomah County arbitration was scheduled for March 30 and dealt with the County's decision to dock correction nurses who showed up late to work during the December, 2008 snowstorm, rather than extend a two hour grace period as it had in the past. The County agreed to pay the four impacted nurses, plus meet to clarify how its inclement weather policy applies to nurses who work in facilities that never close.

The Seaside arbitration dealt with the hospital placing a nurse on low census out of rotation. After admitting its error during the grievance process, the only issue remaining for arbitration was the remedy that would be provided to Ms. Stevens. Ultimately, the grievance was resolved to the satisfaction of all parties, ending the need to have the arbitration scheduled for April 12.
