Essentia Listens to Pharmacists and Reaches an Agreement with Union

After voting down the first contract, the Essentia Pharmacists negotiations committee has reached a tentative agreement. Membership had strong feelings on a couple non-economic issues. The Clinical Specialist staffing issue was withdrawn by the employer. The parties have agreed to move the flexible scheduling issue to LMC with the understanding that members will not be forced into working a flex schedule. Local 1189 members were vocal about these two issues and the Union was successful getting the employer to listen!Voting will be to accept the proposal or reject and strike.Voting will be on Tuesday, February 27, 2018. Location and time of vote TBA. This agreement has full committee recommendation!  Please contact Union Representative Tom Cvar (218-728-5174) with questions.
