Hopkins Hospital, Union Reach Tentative Labor Pact

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- Johns Hopkins Hospital has reached a tentative labor agreement with a union representing about 2,000 workers at the medical institution.

A Hopkins spokeswoman said Tuesday that a union vote will take place over the next couple of days on the tentative agreement.

The union has been in negotiations with the hospital since March and staged a strike in April after rejecting Hopkins' offer of a $12 hourly minimum wage.

The union called off another planned strike last month after Gov. Martin O'Malley intervened and asked for a cooling off period.

According to union officials, the tentative agreement reached early Tuesday immediately establishes a $15 hourly minimum wage for workers with 20 years of service, and a $14.50 wage in 2015 for workers with 15 years on the job.
