Union OK's labor contract
By LAURA ERNDE
McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. - Union workers at Fulton County Medical Center approved their first labor contract since organizing there a year ago, officials said Friday.
The contract gives the employees pay increases, improvements in on-call pay, shift differential and tuition reimbursement, said Eileen Connelly, chief negotiator for District 1199P of the Service Employees International Union.
Hospital officials did not return calls seeking comment.
The union represents about 160 employees at the hospital, including licensed practical nurses, nursing assistants, clerks and workers in laundry, dietary, maintenance and housekeeping.
