LOS ANGELES - Over 550 employees of Providence-owned Tarzana Medical Center in the San Fernando Valley reached a tentative agreement with management yesterday for a union contract that includes annual two percent across-the-board wage increases for all full time and part time workers for three years, and that maintains a ban on subcontracting at the hospital.

The agreement also improves workers’ retirement benefits and increases their protections in the event of a sale of the hospital.
“By showing Providence we were willing to stand up for ourselves, we won raises for every full time and part time worker and kept our ban on subcontracting in place,” said Julia Sidrow-Thompson, a Monitor Technician at Tarzana. “That’s exactly why we joined NUHW — to belong to a union willing to fight and win.”
