Good Sam, though, that bothers me. Those folks give excellent care, and their nurses are top-notch.

Would you be so kind as to post a source for your information?
1st person. I'm in HC and we have a pretty small department, most people do per diem or PT at another hospital.

As for Stony Brooks contract, just google up the PEF and CSEA state contracts.

Be sure to thank 1199 Union as they were part ov Cuomo s medicaid review team and suggested and approved the medicaid changes and cuts that are now screwing their members. Wonder what the payoff to the union exes was.

UOTE=SilverBulletZ06;21756131]Hospitals all around LI are going through big layoffs, hiring freezes, and contract changes. But don't worry, our police and teachers will get their 5-8% bonus'.

Hospitals I know of:
Stony Brook
St. Catherine
St. Charles
South Side
Good Samaritan

Stony Brooks, state run, just screwed its workers with the current contracts. While the rest of the public employees of the area are going to get their raises for the next 5 years, NY is giving 0% 0% 0% 2% 2% on the next contract, plus the workers will need to pay more into their health care costs. If only we could get the same thing from the SCPD and the Districts maybe we'd have taxes people could afford.[/quote]
