Nurses fight to hang onto seniority

by Ruth Leubecker

Faced with unsustainable financial losses, Calais Regional Hospital in its most recent move to slice costs, continues in mediation to allegedly cut back on its senior nurses’ benefits.

Negotiations between CRH and the Maine State Nurses Association, according to the nurses, are focused on pay cuts, decreases in time off, and other benefits related to seniority. The hospital administration counters that CRH goals will always be delivering high-quality patient care and maintaining financial responsibility.
