Chino Valley Bargaining Update: January 30, 2024

On January 30, we voted overwhelmingly to approve our new three-year contract, which our bargaining team negotiated over months of hard negotiations, guided by member input and with crucial member support. We made some huge gains with this contract, including:

  • Established a new wage grid that is competitive within our community to help retain and recruit nurses, with step movement in all three years of the contract.
  • Added a new 20-year step to the grid.
  • Won guaranteed minimum Across-the-Board (ATB) increases for everyone totaling 15.08% over three years.
  • Total increases for Chino Valley RNs will average 18.94% over three years and reach as high as 28.10%.
  • Increased new hire per diem wage rates.
  • Increased relief charge nurse differential.
  • Increased preceptor differential.
  • Increased float differential.
  • Increased standby/callback pay.
  • Increased bereavement leave to five (5) days – 3 paid days and 2 days unpaid or RN can use vacation hours.
  • One time contract ratification bonus of $300 for full-time RNs and $150 for part-time RNs.

This contract was a huge achievement. We can all be proud of our bargaining team and our work together.
