Cooperman Barnabas nurses agree to new 3-year contract with hospital
Nurses at Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston reached a new contract with the hospital, avoiding the need for a strike.
The nurse’s union met with hospital officials last week. The new deal extends three years and addresses concerns related to pay and staffing levels. These are the same issues that put Robert Wood Johnson nurses on strike earlier this year.
“The new contract reflects the tremendous value and respect CBMC has for its nurses. Our nurses’ contributions to this hospital are immeasurable. They are tireless in their efforts to provide the highest quality care for our patients and improving the overall health of the community,” Cooperman Barnabas said in a statement.
The statement continued to say, "We celebrate our nurse colleagues and look forward to building upon the successes we've achieved together and developing new ways to better serve our community."
