Fairview Bargaining Update

Day 4 of negotiations at the Fairview Table!

This is my fourth experience at the negotiations table and never have I felt like the sides were so far apart.  We continue to hear about take aways – take away my insurance, reduce my seniority rights, take away valuable benefits from our valuable nurses who work at .4FTE and more.

I am not hearing from management what can be done to ensure an appropriate environment to allow us to provide quality care for our patients.  What can we do to attract and keep intelligent, ambitious young men and women to nursing?
