McKenzie-Willamette RNs Reach Recommended Tentative Agreement

McKenzie-Willamette Medical Center (MWMC) RNs have demonstrated strong resistance to management’s pursuit of unilateral control over health and retirement benefits. For more than five weeks, nurses have rallied support behind their team and in opposition to management’s regressive proposals with strongly attended membership meetings, coordinated button/sticker displays, rallies outside bargaining sessions and petitions to management. Nurses have been preparing for additional activities, including scheduling a vote to authorize the bargaining team to call for informational picketing. 

It is precisely because we have demonstrated strength and unity that MWMC has withdrawn the reviled Article 25, which was the proposal allowing management unchecked control over nurse health and retirement benefits. The recommended proposed tentative agreement is for 1 year and includes:

  • Maintenance of retirement and health benefits under existing terms of the new contract for length of the contract
  • Wage increase of 1.4 %

A bargaining update meeting is scheduled for January 11th, 0730-1830 in the Willamette Room, McKenzie-Willamette Medical Center. You are encouraged to come get more details of the tentative agreement, as well as, a ratification vote to be scheduled.
