EMMC, Nurses Union Reach Agreement
Nurses vote to ratify three-year contract

Bangor, ME – Eastern Maine Medical Center was pleased to learn our nurses who are represented by Maine State Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee/National Nurses United approved the three year contract yesterday. The next step is to present the final contract offer to EMMC’s Board of Trustees with recommendation from the bargaining team for approval.

“This agreement is a result of compromise from both sides,” says Greg Howat, vice president of Human Resources and EMMC’s chief negotiator. “With the help of a federal mediator, we’re pleased to reach an agreement that is in the best interest of our patients, employees, and the communities we serve. With a three year contract in hand, we look forward to focusing our collective attention on innovations and improvements that continue to ensure our patients and their families receive the highest quality, compassionate care they’ve come to know and expect from EMMC.”
