TOLEDO, Ohio — The UAW released a statement Saturday night saying they had their final informative session with striking nurses, which covered the tentative agreement with Mercy Health.
"The tentative agreement that the Union and Hospital reached earlier this week calls for pay raises, a 15 percent reduction in on-call over an 18-month period and reasonable caps on out-of-pocket healthcare costs," Sandy Theis, UAW's spokeswoman, said.
Nurses are expected to vote on the agreement Monday and Tuesday.
Despite the result, the union is working with politicians such as Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and state Rep. Don Manning (R-Youngstown) to pass legislation that would cover safe staffing.
Calls for comment to Mercy Health weren't immediately responded Saturday night.
