Eastern Maine Medical Center and the Maine State Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee/National Nurses United have come to a tentative agreement on a three-year contract.
"This agreement is the result of compromises on both sides. It is a responsible contract for the hospital and community and acknowledges our nurses' essential contribution to patient care. The agreement ensures we can remain focused on our greatest priority: providing high quality care to our patients," says Deborah Carey Johnson, EMMC president and CEO.
EMMC's bargaining team will present the tentative agreement to the EMMC board with a recommendation to ratify, and the union bargaining team will make a similar presentation to its members.
