Mount St. Mary's Hospital, SEIU reach tentative agreement

New contract to cover registered nurses, service and maintenance & technicians
Mount St. Mary's Hospital and the Service Employees International Union 1199 (SEIU) reached a tentative agreement today on a new contract that is set to expire in March 2022. Details of the contract are not being disclosed until the union members ratify the agreement. A vote is expected to take place in the next several weeks.
Mount St. Mary's Hospital and the SEIU have been in negotiations since September and have remained committed to the bargaining process.
"The negotiating teams on both sides of the table worked diligently and respectfully to come to an agreement on a contract package that meets the needs of our hospital and our staff," Mount St. Mary's Hospital President and CEO Gary Tucker said. "It was critical that we reached an agreement that provided competitive wages and benefits, and that also recognized the impact of a very dynamic and competitive health care environment on an institution that is so vital to the Niagara community."
This is the first negotiated contract between Mount St. Mary's and the SEIU since the merger with Catholic Health in 2015. Negotiations with the SEIU began last fall following the expiration of a contract extension that was agreed to when Mount St. Mary's joined Catholic Health.
