REINSTATE VICKI AND ALLYSHA!
WE’VE REACHED A SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT WITH HUNTINGTON ADMINISTRATION!
This means that rather than go through a 3-4 week hearing this month, with potential for over a year in delays, the NLRB, CNA, and HMH have all agreed to terms outlined in our Settlement Agreement. This is a huge victory and accomplishment for Huntington nurses who’ve been fighting hard for union representation at HMH, and it means vindication for nurses like Allysha, Vicki, and others whose federally protected rights have been violated by their employer, Huntington Memorial Hospital.
The terms of the settlement are fantastic—it includes rescinded termination and full back pay for illegally terminated nurses Allysha and Vicki, setting aside the 2015 election results, and a 60-day notice posting that outlines nurses’ organizing rights.
Thank you for your continued support throughout the nurses’ long journey for justice. This is a significant moment for many of the leaders in our unionization efforts—many have reacted to the news speechless, and filled with tears of joy.
