El Centro Regional Medical Center’s nurse staff has presented the hospital with a financial proposal as part of its first contract with the hospital as an organized labor group, a union representative confirmed Wednesday.

If or when it is approved, the contract will cover all of the hospital’s nurses, more than 200 employees. The move to organize began in February, said Phil Farias, president of Teamsters Local Union 542, which now represents the nurses.
