WTOL — After 38 days of a strike, Mercy Health and nurses with Mercy Health St. Vincent Medical Center have reached agreement on staffing and quality of life issues that had kept the sides separated.
The sides had differed on on-call hours and health care.
A UAW statement issued Wednesday said: “The UAW has reached a tentative agreement with Mercy Health. The agreement addresses many of the nurses’ major concerns, including quality-of-life issues. Therefore, on June 12, the union agreed to end its strike at Mercy Health St. Vincent Medical Center and made an unconditional offer to return to work on behalf of all former strikers. The union intends to schedule a ratification vote as soon as possible on the tentative agreement.”
