It took all day to get it done, but union representatives and Saint Charles-Bend have reached agreement on which employees can vote for a union.  The National Labor Relations Board had scheduled a 1:30 public hearing Tuesday, but that was postponed while closed door negotiations ensued.  Employees told KBND News that the stumbling block was whether or not to include AirLink, CNA's and technicians. Dorothy Vevert works in the Nutrition Department at Saint Charles-Bend. “They agreed to include the departments we wanted to have to go for this union. They are only right now excluding AirLink, but they will allow them to vote.” Vevert says employees were concerned about a number of things including staffing levels: “It will help because we will have more support, better hours, more staff on hand. In the long run it will help for the patients.” Vevert says it's an agreement that both sides feel good about. She said staff was concerned that if something wasn't done reduced staffing levels would have affected patient care.
