Nurses reach contract deal
San Mateo Daily Journal

After working without a contract for more than a year, about 750 registered nurses have reached a tentative agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement with Mills-Peninsula Health Services. Details of the deal are scarce, however, as California Nurses Association members will take a vote Thursday, Oct. 4 on whether to ratify the new contract. A tentative three-year deal was reached Tuesday night after months of negotiations that led to a few one-day strikes and subsequent four-day lockouts. The contract, if approved, will cover this past year and expires in June 2014.
