Union financial experts were extremely disappointed today to see new and different calculations and assumptions from management as both sides were reviewing the cost of proposed concessions in preparation for tomorrow’s scheduled bargaining session. “In light of the shifting numbers at the last minute, we have no choice but to postpone bargaining and send the financial experts back to the drawing board to analyze and vet these new numbers,” said Chief Negotiator Martha Baker, RN. “We are very disappointed. We will be working around the clock to get this work done. For the sake of our patients, I hope that we can get back to the bargaining table quickly.”
Bargaining scheduled for Tuesday, November 29 has been cancelled. Stay tuned. We will send out notification as soon as a new session is scheduled.
