California Nurses Association settles.

California Nurses Association settles

A threatened strike by 5,100 nurses in Northern California was averted when Kaiser Permanente, which provides health care services, and the California Nurses Association agreed on a contract. Kaiser had been seeking several concessions, including a 20-percent pay cut, but the accord only provided for one--elimination of one of two premium pay options for nurses who work on a holiday.

The contract which runs to December 1, 1987, provides for an initial pay increase of 4 percent, followed by increases of 5 percent in January 1986 and 4 percent a year later. Other terms included a new annuity plan permitting employees to defer up to 20 percent of their income, thus sheltering the income from taxes; a requirement that retired nurses must now have 15 years of service to be eligible for supplemental medicare coverage; and elimination of the 90-day limit on carryover of sick leave from year to year.
