Christian Care Nursing Home Workers Win New Contract

Christian Care TA pic120 nursing home workers at Christian Care stuck together and persevered through a long battle for their latest contract. Workers held two pickets, filed several charges with the local labor board, marched on their boss twice, organized around a petition to stop union retaliation from management, and even had a delegation of workers and their kids to call out the meager $0.05 raises that management offered. Through these actions and more, workers showed unity and stood one day longer!

Here are few highlights from the new agreement:

  • Removing limits on the amount of stewards
  • First-time new employee orientation language
  • Discipline and discharge article
  • Improved timelines to the grievance procedure
  • Improved labor management language
  • Removing language preventing members from wearing SEIU buttons and clothing
  • Improvements to vacation, sick, holidays, and minimum rates
  • Across the board increases for all bargaining unit members

Congratulations Christian Care workers!
