2018 Picnic Photo

GREAT turnout for our union picnic at Fort Lincoln Park September 2018.  We had fellow union brother and sisters bring out their families to attend. Thanks to everyone attending and everyone doing their part to make it another successful family picnic.

Meet George Jones

George Jones was hired at CNMC in 1969.  Marchel Smiley first met George at the old hospital on 11th NW.  George attended the Union organizing meeting and said what he & his co-workers wanted most was to be treated with respect at work.   George is the only remaining employee who signed the petition to bring Local 722 into CNMC.

Washington Nationals vs. Colorado Rockies – Game Info

For those who can’t use Labor Night tickets on Sunday, July 30, 2017 for the 7pm game, you have an extended time to swap them out, but you have to go to the box office to do it. You have until September to exchange but obviously earlier is better. This differs from what’s in the rain policy.

Sorry for all the last minute confusion.

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.
