(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.
