BHRNA Bargaining Update: Improving Our Contract at Beverly!

February 2015

Our bargaining goals and priorities are simple:

1. Quality Patient Care: As patient advocates our contract must give us the tools and protections to ensure patients receive the best quality patient care.  Our goal is to reach an agreement that addresses concerns regarding current patient care practices and one that improves the recruitment and retention of nurses.

2. Reflects Our Value: Negotiate a fair contract that reflects our contributions and worth.

3. Organizational Rights: We are professionals and deserve a contract that reflects this. It is important that we negotiate improvements to our contract.

We made significant progress and reached several agreements that strengthen our contract.  Take a look at the attached list of open issues/proposals and tentative agreements.
