Sutter Roseville and Auburn Faith RNs Approve New Contract

Sutter Roseville and Auburn Faith RNs Approve New Contract

The California Nurses Association/National Nurses United have announced that registered nurses at Sutter Health hospitals in Roseville and Auburn have overwhelmingly voted to ratify new three year agreements that provide for important gains in patient protections, and compensation, while protecting the nurses’ health coverage and retirement security.

The new collective bargaining agreement affects some 850 RNs at Sutter Roseville Medical Center and 250 at Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital.

A central component for nurses at both hospitals was assuring no reductions in healthcare benefits or pensions at a time when many employers are attempting to force through cuts in coverage and retirement security.

To Count or Not to Count... That's the Question!

To Count or Not to Count... That's the Question!

To count or not to count… that is the question!  The answer is not to count!  Count what you ask?  CALORIES!!

It was announced recently by David Kirchoff, President of Weight Watchers, the world’s largest diet company, " "Calorie counting has become unhelpful.

Kirchoff and Weight Watchers have eliminated the company's popular "Points" system, which encouraged dieters to lose weight by eating any foods as long as they kept the portions small.
