Calais Regional Hospital and the MSNA bargaining unit of RN’s and MT’s have reached a tentative agreement.
The agreement term length is for 2 years. The two sides reached consensus on the final two points of health insurance and paid time off during negotiations on November 10.
Both sides gave concessions to bring the over 2 year’s long negotiations to a conclusion.
“I am pleased the negotiations have ended and look forward to continuing as a unified team to care for our patients and community through the pandemic and beyond,” said CRH CEO Rod Boula. “I appreciate the efforts of all in finding a solution we can all support.”
In a sign of good will the Union has agreed to withdraw the strike notice.
The bargaining unit must still vote to ratify the tentative agreement at a date to be determined.
CRH staff on the MSNA bargaining committee is recommending final approval of the contract.
