Western region labor relations update.

Negotiations and contract disputes continue to dominate my existence in the western part of the state.

Contracts have successfully been settled at Anaconda Community Hospital, Northern Rockies Medical Hospital in Cut bank as well as the Missoula City/County Health Department.

Negotiations continue with Butte/Silver Bow County and St. Patrick's Hospital in Missoula. We are certain to reach an agreement with them soon.

Due to the complaints filed by MPEA and MEA/ MFT the State contracts are still on hold. The complaint to the National Labor Board stems from the failure of the state to fund raises that were negotiated in good faith.

With 2012 just around the corner, I am certain there will be several more negotiations to be held.

As we say goodbye to 2011, I would like to wish you all a safe and Happy Holiday.
