Nurses at St. Charles in Redmond approved a new three year contract with the Oregon Nurses Association. The contract involves about 125 nurses. They voted on the pact Thursday. The agreement gives nurses a 1% increase the first year and 2% increases during the second and third years. A mediator met with the nurses back in December to help reach an agreement. The Redmond nurses will join the Bend nurses in the St. Charles Health and Benefits Plan as part of the contract agreement.
