Sacred Heart nurses approve contract
Nurses at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Eugene have accepted a new labor agreement that will raise nurses' pay by 17 percent over the next two years, Oregon Nurses Association negotiator Paul Goldberg said Monday.
Goldberg said 77 percent of the ONA members at Sacred Heart voted Aug. 14 to approve the settlement, reached earlier this month with the help of a state mediator.
Nurses who work for Sacred Heart Home Health Services approved the new contract by a 94 percent "yes" vote, he said.
The new contract also adds a new pay step starting in 2004 for nurses with 25 years of service with Sacred Heart, Goldberg said. And nurses working nights will eventually receive up to $5.15 extra per hour, he said.
Negotiations on a new contract began in May. The most recent mediation session was held Aug. 5. The new contract is retroactive to July 1, the day after the previous contract expired.

Man killed in crash was from Springfield
CORRECTION (ran 8/21/02): Anthony R. Gwyther, 55, of Springfield was the passenger in a van that veered off a gravel road near Blue River Reservoir on Saturday, killing the driver, Jimmy L. Hinshaw, 60, of Springfield. A story in Tuesday's City/Region section mistakenly identified Gwyther as the driver.
BLUE RIVER - The Lane County sheriff's office released the name of a man Monday who died in a wreck near Blue River Reservoir over the weekend.
Jimmy L. Henshaw, 60, of Springfield was a passenger in a 1990 Dodge van that skidded off a single-lane gravel road Saturday, tumbled about 60 feet over an embankment and hit a tree, the sheriff's office said. Henshaw died at the scene.
The driver of the van, Anthony R. Gwyther, 55, of Springfield, was taken to McKenzie- Willamette Hospital in Springfield for evaluation and has since been released.
Investigators said it appeared that the van lost control on the unimproved road about 12 miles from the reservoir. After the crash, Gwyther got the attention of a passing motorist, who called for help.
Springfield firefighters and Lane County sheriff's search and rescue crews responded to the crash, which remained under investigation Monday.
