Moun­tain­view Hos­pi­tal ex­ec­u­tives and reg­is­tered nurses or­ga­nized by the National Nurses United have reached a con­tract agree­ment, the union said. The con­tract is the first be­tween Moun­tain­view, an Hca-owned hos­pi­tal in Las Ve­gas, and the union, which won an elec­tion at 235-bed Moun­tain­view nearly two years ago. The National Nurses Union is also in first­con­tract ne­go­ti­a­tions with 16 HCA hos­pi­tals in Florida, Mis­souri and Texas. The National Nurses Union and HCA, Nashville, reached an or­ga­niz­ing agree­ment last year that al­lowed or­ga­niz­ers ac­cess to work­ers in some states in ex­change for a pledge to leave some HCA hos­pi­tals alone. Moun­tain­view nurse pay in­creases will range from 9% to 19% dur­ing the con­tract, the union said in a news re­lease. Moun­tain­view also agreed to no manda­tory over­time and to re­view staffing un­der a newly cre­ated com­mit­tee and hire additional nurses, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease.
