Mercy Hospital Union Ratifies Contract

Buffalo, NY – Service, technical, and clerical employees of Mercy Hospital ratified a new contract Monday night.

The agreement ends negotiations that began in March.

Mercy Hospital President and Chief Executive Officer John P. Davanzo said the hospital is extremely pleased with the outcome of the vote.

"Together with our STC employees, who are an integral part of our patient care team, we look forward to a brighter future for Mercy Hospital, and a continued focus on delivering high quality care to our patients."

The two-year pact formalizes a tentative agreement reached June 18.

According to Davanzo,the roughly eight percent wage increases outlined in the contract are consistent with similar positions throughout the Catholic Health System.
