SBMC Negotiation Update #10

August 21, 2020

Dear NJNU Members:

The company and your NJNU-CWA bargaining team met virtually again via GoToMeeting on Tuesday and Wednesday ending each day late at night. We apologize for the delay in getting this report to all of you.

The Team has persisted and discussions continued regarding sick leave during a pandemic or a resurgence of a pandemic, and we were able to reach a tentative agreement that in general terms will provide time off with pay for an employee that is required by the Medical Center to be quarantined due to a work related exposure.
