August 26, 2018- On Sunday, members from our bargaining units at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center celebrated the work that has been done in the one year since members have decided to form a union and ratified their first contracts.
After OFNHP members filed complaints with the National Labor Relations Board, the federal agency charged with protecting workers rights and overseeing union elections, conducted an investigation and found that Peace Health violated the law.
OFNHP members at KPNW won important agreements in Continuing Care Services, Urgent Care, and Emergency Psychiatric Services in June. Take a look at how our departmental bargaining teams were able to improve the conditions for OFNHP members and their patients.
OFNHP stewards are at it again--enforcing our contracts to protect our hard-won wages and benefits! For the last two years, PeaceHealth has incorrectly calculated PTO by not including evening and night shift differentials in the pay. Stewards grieved the issue and prevailed, returning over $200,000 to the pockets of our members! Thanks to the perseverance of our stewards, management has fixed their practice, and more than 550 members who got short-changed will see backpay on their next paycheck!
