Lifespan and CNE Announce Agreement

Union Says Not So Fast!!!

   CNE and Lifespan have announced that they have settled all of their differences and that they are prepared to move forward seeking regulatory approval for their merger. Your Union is prepared to weigh in on this issue. We have three primary demands.

  • Protection of the integrity of Kent Hospital making sure that Kent is part of any final merger and not spun off to a bottom feeding for profit hospital chain.
  • Assure continuation of all services our community has come to rely upon us to provide to them at our hospital.
  • A signed written agreement protecting all member’s job security.

   To this end, we have sent a written request to the administration to begin negotiations over a written job security provision. We are ready to negotiate the terms of such agreement immediately.

   An important membership meeting is scheduled to fully brief every member on this important issue.
