Cay Hill:--- SMMC is pleased to announce that, in the presence of the Mediator Mr. K. Lopes, an agreement has been reached with the WIHCUA on a new Collective Labor Agreement for the employees of St. Maarten Medical Center. After lengthy discussions parties agreed to a package that significantly benefits the labor conditions of the employees and also fits the guiding principles of SMMC.

The agreed upon CLA is not just a document for covering the Labor conditions within the SMMC, but also provides a framework where parties can work together. Within this framework committees will be established to give special attention to common objectives and goals.

The new CLA will go into effect as of June 1, 2011 and has a duration of 3 years. SMMC has proposed to have the official signing take place on June 7th, 2011, being that this date coincides with the official opening of SMMC 20 years ago.

Before that date, parties will confirm the agreed upon arrangements that will have direct or indirect financial consequences, by signing a protocol.
