Its Time to Bargain

Contract negotiations with Children’s National is rapidly approaching. We anticipate starting in mid-May. Because we are a diverse membership there are various definitions of what is a successful outcome.

Increased income tops everyone’s list. Our younger members seek upward mobility; members with school age children are focused on medical benefits; our high skilled group want parity with the RN’s and professional recognition; those approaching retirement want better pension options; PCT’s and PSA’s do not want assignments as “SITTERS”; those who habitually call-in or be late, want more hours to call-in or be late; while those that come to work every day want us not to protect those that call-in and be late.

No matter how you define success, these three (3) factors are necessary for bargaining to be successful.
