Ocean Beach Hospital nurses to vote on tentative contract agreement

Unionized nurses and Ilwaco, Wash.-based Ocean Beach Hospital have reached a tentative contract agreement, according to a Chinook Observer report.

Mara Kieval, BSN, RN, a Washington State Nurses Association nurse representative for the OBH nurses, did not disclose specific details about the proposed agreement. However, she did say the agreement includes a 3 percent across-the-board wage increase for each year of the three-year contract, "as well as no changes to low census or standby language," according to the report.

The nurses are slated to vote on the contract July 27. According to the report, they are currently working under the terms of their 2013 collective bargaining agreement, which expired March 31.
