Registered nurses ratify one-year contract

YOUNGSTOWN — Registered nurses at Northside Medical Center on Wednesday ratified a one-year agreement that will provide approximately 370 registered nurses across-the-board raises of at least 2 1/2 percent.

Some nurses whose salaries have been frozen under the old salary scale for up to seven years will earn significantly higher increases as their pay scales will move up to where they would have been if the freeze had not been in place.
