Nurses at the University of Michigan Hospital have ratified a contract that includes wage increases over the next three years.
The Michigan Nurses Association represents the 4,000 nurses at the Ann Arbor hospital.
The union says nurses will have a stronger voice in staffing and technology issues.
An MNA statement says charge nurses will have a say in determining whether more staffing is needed to meet specific patient needs.
Some nurses could see pay increases of $5 to $10 per hour in the last year of the contract.
Nurses had been working without a contract since July 1st.
