This resolution would provide Assembly ratification of the tentative agreement negotiated between Bartlett Regional Hospital and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, Healthcare Unit 2201, for
a collective bargaining agreement that will expire on December 31, 2023.
The tentative agreement includes the following wage increases: 2% in
fiscal year 2022, 2% in fiscal year 2023, and 1% in fiscal year 2024. The economic terms also include a one-time $1000 lump sum bonus payment for full time employees employed on June 1, 2021 or a $500 lump sum bonus payment for part time, casual or PRN employees employed on June 1, 2021. The total cost of these provisions over the life of the contract for both union and non-represented employees is projected to be approximately $6,219,000.
In addition, there are other non-economic language changes to the collective bargaining agreement.
This tentative agreement has been put out for ratification vote by the ILWU membership, but the voting period is not yet complete, so the votes have not been counted. Assembly ratification of this tentative agreement is conditioned on ILWU ratification of the tentative agreement.
The Bartlett Regional Hospital Board of Directors reviewed the tentative agreement in a Committee of the Whole meeting and unanimously recommended that the Assembly ratify the tentative agreement.
