Tentative Agreement Reached Between JHH and District 1199E-DC Service Employees International Union
After six months of negotiations between the District 1199E-DC Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and The Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH) a tentative agreement has been reached. Ratification of the contract, which expired on March 1, 2004, is still pending by the membership. However, as a result of this agreement, the strike scheduled to begin on Tuesday, June 8, 2004, at 6 a.m. has been canceled.
It is believed that this is a progressive agreement that not only provides Union employees with never before benefits, but also remains responsible to the organization and committed to the greater Baltimore community.
