Sault MNA Nurses Ratify New Contract

SAULT STE. MARIE, MI – Nurses at MyMichigan Medical Center Sault on Tuesday voted to ratify a new contract that will help recruit and retain the RNs needed to take care of the community now and into the future.

“We’re proud of our solidarity and strength as a union that made this possible, as well as the amazing community support for which we are so grateful,” said Colleen Waucaush, RN and president of the Michigan Nurses Association local bargaining unit at the hospital. “This journey was worth it to set up a better future for local nurses and our hospital, which ultimately means a better future for everyone in the eastern U.P. Nurses never lost our focus on providing the best care possible for our patients, and we’re proud that this contract will support making that happen every day at our hospital.”

Sault nurses were always focused on achieving a fair contract that will recruit and retain nurses. The new contract supports that with wage increases that will move the top-of-the-scale wage beyond $50 an hour by the end of the contract on Dec. 31, 2027. About 120 nurses work at the hospital.


The Michigan Nurses Association is the largest union and professional association for registered nurses and healthcare professionals in Michigan and an affiliate of National Nurses United and AFL-CIO.
