RE: Approval of Tentative Agreement with the Montana Nurses' Association

DATE: September 21-23, 2005

Attached is a summary of the tentative agreement reached with the Montana Nurses' Association. This bargaining unit consists of three registered nurses at Montana State University in Bozeman. The union-ratified tentative agreement includes revisions to the prior agreement.

Revisions include:

  • Wage increases of 3.5 percent and 4.0 percent effective October 1, 2005, and October 1, 2006, respectively.
  • Continuation the Dependent Partial Tuition Waiver.

Other revisions were for clarification and/or contract housekeeping.

I recommend approval of the tentative agreement with the Montana Nurses' Association.
