Negotiations Between EMMC and Nursing Union Continue; Contract Extended

06/17/2015

(Bangor, Maine) – Bargaining teams representing EMMC and the Maine State Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee/National Nurses United met again today. Although the parties were unable to come to an agreement on a new contract, the current contract was extended through July 2.
 
Several proposals that EMMC and the union have been discussing for weeks were resolved; however, there was little movement on staffing ratios and compensation, which remain the most significant issues on the table.
 
The parties will be back at the bargaining table on June 24.
