(Providence, RI)  --  A new contract is being approved by unionized nurses at Rhode Island Hospital and Hasbro Children's Hospital.  A statement from the United Nurses and Allied Professionals Local 5098 on Wednesday indicates union members approved the five-year deal after a tentative agreement was reached last Friday.  The terms of the agreement include across-the-board salary increases and a competitive wage plan, establishing a new committee to address unsafe staffing and resources concerns, and several other provisions.  A three-day strike was held in July, followed by a one-day lockout.
