El Camino Hospital Workers Ratify New Contract
Date:12/6/2007

Agreement Includes Voice in Staffing Issues, Health Coverage for Part-Timers, Training Fund

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Healthcare workers at El Camino Hospital voted unanimously Tuesday to ratify a new contract that includes a greater voice in improving patient care, health coverage for part-time employees and a training and education fund for career advancement at the hospital.

The contract was tentatively settled last week, after eight months of bargaining between management and SEIU United Healthcare Workers-West, which represents nearly 1,000 workers at El Camino Hospital.

"This contract is great for our patients and for us as healthcare workers," said Tammy Buckles, a clinical lab scientist at the hospital and a member of the union bargaining team. "The provisions for job training and the care committee can only improve patient care at El Camino. The contract also brings us closer to the industry standard in terms of wages and benefits."

The agreement establishes patient-care committees and includes provisions that emulate the success of UHW-represented hospitals, where care has improved through improving workers' voice on the job. The hospital will also contribute to a jointly funded education program that provides training for healthcare workers to obtain further education and advance up the career ladder.

Additionally, the contract includes across-the-board wage increases. Workers covered by the contract will see their wages increase 19 percent over the life of the agreement. Those workers include nursing assistants, lab technicians, aides, and other healthcare workers.

The contract will be in effect until June 30, 2011.

The 150,000-member SEIU United Healthcare Workers-West is the largest hospital and healthcare union in the western United States and represents every type of healthcare worker, including nurses, professional, technical and service classificati
