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.

On Tuesday, June 26, 2018, we were able to come to a tentative contract agreement with the MedStar Washington Hospital Center. This agreement is tentative until you have a chance to vote whether or not to accept it.

On Thursday, June 28, 2018, members of the Negotiation Team will be in the True auditorium from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm, to present the tentative agreement and to answer any questions that you may have. Please come on your break or off times. Do not come on work time. Come and get the correct information yourself.


Voting on the contract will take place Friday, June 29, 2018, in the True Auditorium, which is
located on the ground floor of the East Building. The time for the voting will be 7:00 am to 8:30

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.
