They did not respond to our August proposals on overtime, holidays, sick time, dependent care days, wellness days, child care center, personal leave, disability leave, vacations, tuition reimbursement, insurance, pension, 403B, or wages.
After 8 months of us organizing and 6 months of negotiations we are no closer to knowing where they stand on these issues.
To be honest, I don't know if THEY know where they stand.
What does this mean?
Either they are still intent on busting our union or they hope to stall long enough that we tire and accept whatever they are willing to propose.
What are our options?
Number 1 is unacceptable,
We have to remember that EVERYONE HAS A BOSS. The hospital lawyer and the hospital negotiation's team answer to the CEO and he answers to the board of directors. In practice the board should answer to the community.
We have a responsibility to stand up for ourselves, our families, our patients and our community.
