Fountain Valley Bargaining Update

February 2013

February 22, 2013

FVPA-Bargaining-Montage-20120222At the last round of scheduled negotiations on 2/13 and 2/14, no agreements were reached. We presented our counter proposals on Article 5, Job Posting and Article 24, Work Stoppage.

Despite the limited time actually spent bargaining at the table, we made good use of the two days by continuing work on the economic proposals. We reviewed existing wage practices and discussed how to develop a wage proposal that recognizes RN and professional license experience.

We thank all the members from the different departments/units who came and gave their input in the discussions.

"We need to be involved in these discussions. This is our contract."  - Andrew Wolfinger, RN (Telemetry)

In our next negotiations, we will be formulating our wage proposals. We ask that every unit/department send a delegation of nurses and professionals to work with us in developing these proposals.
