MetroWest/Leonard Morse Hospital
The MNA nurses at MetroWest Medical Center/Leonard Morse Hospitalt recently overwhelmingly rejected the management’s proposal to not be paid overtime for the first hour after eight hours in a day from Jan. 4, 2009 through July 4, 2009.
During negotiations on this issue, the MNA committee counter-proposed that if hospital management agreed to no further layoffs during that same period of time then the unionized RNs would agree to the overtime pay proposal.
The hospital rejected that counter proposal and offered no other proposal.
