Contract Update 2015

Local 5082 of the UNAP at Memorial Hospital of RI has agreed to a six (6) month contract extension with Care New England (CNE). Their contract, which was set to expire on June 14, 2015, has been extended through December 31, 2015. The Local, however, plans to work on making a comprehensive set of contract proposals to CNE well before the December 31st deadline in order to bring its contract up to the same level as the contract at Kent County Hospital, another CNE Hospital. In that regard, Local 5082 has been coordinating with its sister Local, Local 5008, at Kent.
