Providence Saint John's Health Center averts union strike with tentative agreement

Providence Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., and the Service Employees International Union-United Healthcare Workers West reached a tentative contract agreement, according to a Santa Monica Observer report.

The agreement means a previously planned strike authorization vote is called off. SEIU-UHW told Becker's service and technical workers will vote on the agreement next week and more details will be available afterward.

Union members, which include service and technical employees, were initially scheduled to hold a strike authorization vote this week at the hospital. A strike would have affected 450 employees.
