Contract Ratified!

The vote to ratify was nearly unanimous with 99.5% voting YES!!
 
This is a historic conclusion to a historic campaign! We could not have accomplished any of this without all of us standing up and standing together.
 
Our fight was won because it was built on the unity of each and every nurse in our union.

TA Info Session & Ratification Vote Scheduled

An online info session on the tentative collective bargaining agreement (TA) for a new four-year contract with Hartford HealthCare’s representatives has been scheduled for Tuesday, 10/20 at 8:00PM. The ratification vote is scheduled Wednesday, 10/21 from 9:00AM to 9:00PM at our local union hall in Norwich.

MANAGEMENT ACCEPTED OUR PROPOSALS!

There will be at least two info sessions next week to go over all the proposals. We will have the vote to ratify on Thursday, October 22nd. Times and location to be determined.
 
Your bargaining team and strike captains are available to answer questions outside of the info sessions and copies of the full tentative agreement will be available as soon as possible (give Logan a few days to prepare). 

#BackUsBackOurNurses By Showing Your Support Today!

After months of calling the nurses of Backus Hospital “heroes,” management has resisted bargaining a fair contract, and instead chosen to violate our rights under the National Labor Relations Act. We’ve filed Unfair Labor Practice charges calling out Backus managers and Hartford HealthCare (HHC) executives on their intimidation and threatening of nurses for union activity. We’re taking a stand for what we need in these negotiations to be able to work safely during the next wave of this pandemic.
