C.N.A. at San Leandro Hospital Bargaining Update October 14, 2019

On October 11, 2019 Alameda Health System (AHS) met with the California Nurses Association (CNA) to continue negotiations to secure a new collective bargaining agreement for the San Leandro Hospital (SLH) registered nurses.

AHS values our nurses and the work they do every day to provide high quality care to our patients which is why we offer some of the most competitive benefits in the nation, which includes comprehensive medical insurance at little to no cost, employer-only contributions toward a Defined Benefit Plan, and competitive pay.

We are committed to attracting and retaining a competent and talented workforce and we are proposing to our CNA represented employees the following:

SALARY
 -2.5% wage increase each fiscal year beginning in FY 2019/20 to FY 2024/25
 -Step increases in December for those who are eligible for step increases

This offer guarantees wage increases for nurses through 2025 despite financial difficulties faced by SLH and AHS.

PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE COMMITTEE
-Up to four hours of paid release time per month to eight nurses to attend Professional Performance
Committee.  That’s a total of 32 hours of paid time for nurses.

RETIREE HEALTH
-Retiree Health contributions on behalf of each regular status nurse towards a plan governed and
administered by CNA

HEALTH INSURANCE
-A health plan at zero cost to employees throughout the terms of the contract and minimal contribution by employees for their eligible dependents beginning in Calendar Year 2021.
