Union Critical of Hospital’s “Last” Offer

Lawrence and Memorial Hospital in New London has amended its proposal to end its lockout of  800 nurses and technicians.The proposal offers ratification bonuses,$1,000  for full time workers,$500  for part time workers and  $250 for those who work  between  4  and 19 hours per week.The union members would have until next Monday to ratify to get the  signing bonuses.

Matt O’Connor, spokesman for  the union AFT Connecticut says  the offer appears to be no different that previous proposals which have been rejected, excpet for the  signing bonuses, which  he says are little more than a  bribe   to force the union members  hand to vote for proposals that have already been rejected.

The union  says it is ready to resume negotiations, though none have been scheduled.
