SBMC 2015 Negotiation Update #2

Your negotiating team has met for 2 more sessions this week with no progress on the GI/ENDO on-call issue and the sick time/OT issue, (2 givebacks). The 3rd giveback the 3rd floor patterns, there was some more progressive discussions about that. Staffing and acuity language, we have made NO progress with getting that language in the contract, the hospital feels they do a good job, "not always perfect", but a good job of staffing the hospital and that there is no need for acuity/staffing language in the contract. We obviously feel differently.

NJNU continues to focus on the impact of adequate nurse staffing on patient outcomes and the various factors that can affect safe staffing. Unfortunately, the employer continues to focus on the corporate end of the healthcare industry, thus forcing our nurses to protect themselves and their patients. While there may be issues that are unique to your unit, there are still a few things that are important for every nurse to know in order to protect their license, as follows:

Staffing at MMCSC/BHBHC

There have been many staffing issues at MMCSC/BHBHC which NJNU is in the process of investigating. We are asking that each of our members continue to report every incident that they feel places their license in jeopardy or comprises your ability to provide quality level care to your patients. In addition, we are in the process of populating a committee dedicated to addressing the staffing issues that are unique to your facility. If you would like more information, please click here.
