Negotiations Update

Day 3 On May 12th the parties continued to make progress towards reaching a successor agreement. The parties reached tentative agreements on Sections 703 (Lay-offs), 806 (Rancho Springs Self-Contained Staffing), Section 901 (Economic Action), and Section 2401 (Conference Rooms). The parties also had productive discussions regarding Article V (Discipline) and Section 1001-Management Rights.

Day 2 UNOCH and RCHSD met for day 2 of negotiations on 5/8/17. The parties continued to have productive discussions and reached numerous tentative agreements concerning UNOCH membership and representation (Sections 203, 204, 205, 206, 207, 301, 307, and 308). These changes will benefit UNOCH’s administrative efficiency by increasing the information RCHSD provides to UNOCH and streamlining the process by which UNOCH provides representation to bargaining unit members during meetings and interviews with RCHSD.

Day 1 On 5/1/17 UNOCH met with RCHSD for Day 1 of negotiations for the RN bargaining unit. We are happy to report that we had a productive day. Both parties presented non-economic proposals resulting in 3 Tentative Agreements (Section 201-UNOCH Security; Section 1701-Bereavement Leave Eligibility; and Section 2601-Labor/management Committee).

UNOCH is waiting for responses on proposals regarding seniority, floating, and UNOCH membership.
