Garden Grove RNs Ratify New Contract With Raises Overwhelmingly

July 2011

Garden Grove Registered Nurses voted overwhelmingly Tuesday, June 19 to approve a new contract that includes wage increases retroactive to October, 2010, and several contract improvements including bonuses, differentials and new holidays, while holding the line against proposed takeaways of our reserve sick bank and other benefits.
Members turned out in large numbers to hear details of the contract and to vote.
We won this contract through our willingness to act and stay unified, despite many long months of negotiations since Garden Grove Hospital and Medical Center was taken over by Prime Healthcare. For more details, contact our Affiliate Officers. They will also be making the rounds of the hospital to share details with members.
