Sutter Health Collective Bargaining Agreement

The Bakery, Confectionery and Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers (BCTGM) union announced that 277 Mondelez International Inc. workers were working at a Chicago plant. The layoffs were the first part of a downsizing at Nabisco Chicago Bakery, announced in early 2015. The union represents about 4,000 workers in several De Mondelez factories. Modelez and BCTGM`s previous collective agreement expired in February and the company submitted a « last, better and final » offer earlier this month. Contract negotiations between the parties are expected to resume in April. The Writers Guild of America East (WGAE) and Gawker Media LLC have signed a three-year contract for 99 editors. The agreement is the first since the launch in 2010 of the WGAE campaign to organize the staff of the digital newsroom. For full-time workers, the contract ratified with Gawker includes a minimum wage of $50,000 per year, a claim lawsuit, an authorization clause and annual increases of 3 per cent. The contract also includes certain rights for the liberal professions. For example, in Google search for several Sutter Health CBA (Sutter Lakeside Hospital, Tracy Sutter Hospital, Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital, Sutter Davis Hospital, Sutter Amador Hospital, Roseville Sutter, etc.) I cannot find a single treaty, although I find a lot of news articles about different negotiated contracts.

I found similar results in search of Dignity Health Agreements (St Joseph`s Medical Center in Stockton, Woodland Memorial Hospital, Mercy General Hospital, Mercy San Juan Medical Center, etc.). I can sometimes find CBAs for other types of workers, but none for nurses. After more than a year of negotiations, UNITE HERE members have ratified a new employment contract for 9,000 employees of food supplier LSG Sky Chefs. Conditions include $1.10 per hour by 2018, an additional day of paid sick leave and a pilot program that will transfer LSG Sky Chefs employees in California from a business health plan to a UNITE HERE health plan. Members of the California Nurses Association/National Nurses United overwhelmingly ratified two four-year contracts with the nonprofit hospital chain Sutter Health, covering 3,500 registered nurses at two medical facilities. The agreements affect 1,800 nurses at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Berkeley and Oakland and, for the first time, about 1,700 nurses at California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) in San Francisco. The terms of the contract include salary increases of between 20 and 28 per cent over time, depending on the years of service of each nurse at Sutter. The CPMC contract also provides for an ebola standard that will allow the union and Sutter Health to establish a committee to deal with Ebola-related health and safety issues. United Steelworkers and Allegheny Technologies Inc.

have reached an agreement on a four-year contract for 2,200 workers at 12 sites across the country. The agreement is conditional on the withdrawal of fees filed by the union with the NRL, resulting from the lockout of unionized staff by ATI for months.
