Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Nurses at Petaluma Valley Hospital have approved a new labor agreement with St. Joseph Health, which runs the hospital, the California Nurses Association announced Wednesday. The deal gives nurses 2 percent annual pay raises for three years but also reduces their standby pay, a St. Joseph’s official said. The CNA represents about about 170 nurses at Petaluma Valley Hospital. The union contract also was approved by more than 900 union nurses at two other St. Joseph hospitals, St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka and St. Mary Medical Center in Apple Valley.
