Nurses at St. Catherine of Siena Hospital have reached a tentative agreement days after overwhelmingly voting to authorize a strike, according to the New York State Nurses Association.
The tentative agreement includes two of the nurses’ main demands: safe staffing and better wages for workers.
Negotiations began on June 30 for the new contract.
The hospital released a statement, saying, “St. Catherine of Siena Hospital is pleased to have reached a tentative agreement that reflects the hospital’s commitment to our nurses. The tentative agreement ensures that our nurses continue to be supported with competitive salary increases and staffing improvements. Our nurses are vital to ensuring the communities we serve have access to the highest levels of care, and we are grateful for their dedication to our patients.”
St. Catherine nurses will begin voting to ratify the contract on Aug. 22.
More details will be released following the ratification vote.
