The nurses union wanted a bigger voice for staff nurses through a professional practices committee. Bargaining director Fernando Losada says that part of the agreement is now satisfactory to both sides. He says management will be involved in the committee, but bedside nurses will have an enhanced role.
Finalizing the deal is now up to members of the nurses union, and the board of trustees of EMMC.
The union is expected to vote on the contract proposal within the next two days.
