On June 12, 2020 we had our second meeting with hospital admin­is­tra­tion. We made some progress on non-monetary issues, however we were disap­pointed that Multi­Care Good Samar­itan Manage­ment offered the following wage increases: 0.75% upon ratifi­ca­tion, 1% in April 2021 & 1% in April 2022. This wage proposal does not value or respect the hard work and dedica­tion that the RNs at Good Samar­itan hospital bring day in and day out.

Good Samar­itan is also proposing signif­i­cant take aways from its nurses! Good Samar­itan Manage­ment wants to expand floating, prior­i­tize travelers and agency nurses in the low census rotation, cut Per Diem pay, and cut health­care. Good Samar­itan manage­ment is also refusing to agree to retal­i­a­tion protec­tions.

Our next meeting with manage­ment is set for June 19.

We have begun making plans for a meeting with the nurses. Stay tuned for details.

Please wear the badge holders and use the WSNA pens to show your support for a fair contract.
