GREENFIELD, Mass. (AP) – Nurses at Greenfield’s Baystate Franklin Medical Center have ratified a new contract after a sometimes acrimonious 29-month labor standoff with the hospital. The contract was unanimously approved on Thursday. The five-year contract will cover the past two years and extend through Dec. 31, 2016. It includes a compromise on overtime pay, the issue that had kept nurses and hospital leaders from reaching a deal earlier. Under the deal brokered last week by state lawmakers, the hospital will pay nurses standard pay for up to one hour after the end of a scheduled shift. A nurse who works beyond the one-hour grace period will automatically earn time-and-a-half pay for overtime hours. Hospital officials say it will save them about $65,000 per year.
