BANGOR — There’s been no progress toward settling a new contract between unionized nurses and administrators at the Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.

A mediator shuttled between the two sides yesterday in hopes of resuming stalled contract talks, but the talks adjourned without making any progress.

Hospital Vice President Greg Howatt says the mediator felt it would not be productive to continue.

Nurse’s Union President Judy Brown says nurses at the 400-bed hospital are frustrated administrators haven’t been willing to negotiate.

The nurses want minimum staffing levels in a new contract, but administrators say staffing levels need to remain flexible.

The Bangor Daily News says the two sides will try again on Feb. 28.
