We Did It! Historic Contract Ratified
By an overwhelming yes vote, we have approved our new three-year contract. Our comprehensive agreement made great progress to address the recruitment and retention crisis, raising base wages from $15-$20 per hour over the next 24 months for all RNs.
This is a historic contract. We are now compensated at similar rates to nurses at UCSD and Kaiser and have better workplace protections so we can provide the highest standards of care. Now that grids are in place, SPNN nurses will have reliable step movement every year in addition to ATBs.
Also, we have substantially improved protections against unfair discipline and enhanced our rights. Additionally, full-time and part-time SPNN members will have an opportunity to pursue a BSN at no cost beginning in 2023.
