Proposed Agreement For Union Workers And WVU Hospitals

A proposed agreement between 868  AFL-CIO Local 814 union workers and West Virginia University hospitals could prevent a strike planned for January 1st. Last Tuesday, union workers had given a ten-day strike notice to hospital officials after failing to reach an agreement on a contract set to expire December 31st. Information sessions on the new proposal are set for Wednesday, and a vote is expected to come Thursday. Hospital officials say compromise over pay, healthcare costs and other issues were hammered out during a meeting between both sides Monday. Union leaders had previously expressed concern over a $150 hospital admission fee, a doubling of emergency-room co-pays and pay raises.
