Providence

Negotiations will begin this fall.

West Springfield School Nurses

The contract has been settled and the nurses have received their retroactive monies and raises.

Worcester School Nurses

Negotiations continue. The nurses have filed two grievances over staffing issues and the MNA has filed an unfair labor practice charge against the school committee resulting from a dispute arising from the last contract over health insurance.

Jordan Hospital

The tentative agreement between the hospital and the MNA has been ratified. Members will be getting information soon from the hospital about the enrollment in the Blue Cross/Blue Shield health insurance plan. If any problems arise during the transition, members are asked to contact the bargaining unit’s elected officials.
