AN EMAIL WAS SENT TO ALL LOCAL 12 MEMBERS AT HEALTHPARTNERS ON MONDAY INVITING YOU TO A ZOOM MEETING WITH THE BARGAINING TEAM ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 22ND AT 7:00PM TO GET DETAILED UPDATES AND ASK QUESTIONS AND DISCUSS NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE BARGAINING TEAM. PLEASE SEE YOUR EMAIL FOR THE REGISTRATION LINK.
Since bargaining began, Local 12 members have been meeting and getting much done in the negotiation process. Both the employer and the union have come to some tentative agreements, dropped a few proposals, and offered counters. Of the proposals the Tentative agreements we have are include:
19.08 Trial Period. The employer had asked for an extension in the trial period when a member moves to a new location. We felt that it was fair the way it was. Counters were given back and forth and ultimately, we agreed to the 60 day for a move to the same job title and 90 to a different job title. The change to the current language is minimal. In turn, the employer agreed to drop the proposal for 20.11 to extend the trial period for a member who was displaced. We could not agree to this proposal because in this instance the member was placed in this job not by choice but because of a layoff.
