ALTHOUGH WE HAVE REACHED A TENTATIVE AGREEMENT, OUR WORK IS NOT DONE: 
YOU (the members) still have to ratify the agreement. You will get a chance to vote on whether or not to accept the agreement. We will be holding informational meetings on the proposed contract changes. It is important that you (yes, you!) all attend these meetings in order to find out about OUR contract changes. 

Only FULL AaNA members are eligible to vote, but we welcome all nurses covered by the AaNA/PAMC contract to come hear about the proposed changes for 2015-2018. Members of the negotiating team will be present to explain and take feedback on the work we have done. 
 
INFORMATIONAL MEETINGS & RATIFICATION VOTE DATES & TIMES: 
Please drop by at any time convenient for you


THURSDAY, JUNE 18TH -- 10 AM to 9 PM at AaNA Office 
FRIDAY, JUNE 19TH -- 2 PM to 9 PM at PAMC West Auditorium 
MONDAY, JUNE 22ND -- 10 AM to 9 PM at PAMC West Auditorium

The 2015 AaNA/PRN and PAMC negotiating teams have worked very hard to reach what we believe is a fair 3-year contract. Negotiations proceeded with compromises on both sides during these difficult and uncertain times for the healthcare industry. 
 



BIG CHANGES / HIGHLIGHTS OF THE AGREEMENT INCLUDE: 
-Changes in Registry language, including scheduling and on-call
-Preceptor vs. Orientor definitions and pay
-New language protecting breastfeeding mothers
-Changes in consecutive shifts
-Continuation of PTO & Sick Time as is
-LEAVE: New language and/or new types of leave for: bereavement leave, personal leave, educational leave of absence, company medical leave
-Parental Leave for non-FMLA-eligible nurses 
-New language for injury prevention & safe patient handling
 


 
Your Negotiating Team believes that this is a strong contract and recommends ratification!
