Nurses ratify contract
About 1,100 unionized nurses at Tufts-New England Medical Center have ratified a new contract that includes wage increases of between 11 and 16 percent over two years, depending on experience. The highest hourly wage for nurses will rise to $58.23, from $52.23.
The contract, made public today by the Massachusetts Nurses Association, will be in effect through Oct. 31, 2008. It also establishes a retiree health insurance savings account, which will be funded through contributions from employees and the hospital.
