The agreement covers nearly 1,000 registered nurses in the isles, as well as workers in various job classifications in California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, Georgia and the District of Columbia.
If ratified during voting by the 28 local unions this summer, the contract will take effect Oct. 1.
