Nursing Home Contracts Bring Increased Wages, Extended Benefits, & New Members

ULTCW Nursing Home Members Celebrate April Victories

 

Contracts Bring Increased Wages and Extended Benefits, and

New Members Welcomed to ULTCW

 

The month of April brought cause to celebrate as ULTCW nursing home members achieved both contract victories and organizing victories.

 

ULTCW Welcomes New Members: On April 1, 276 nursing home workers from Los Feliz Healthcare and Wellness Centre, South Pasadena Convalescent Hospital, and Los Angeles Rehabilitation and Wellness Centre voted overwhelmingly to join our ULTCW family.

 

ULTCW Members Celebrate Contract Victories: April also brought ULTCW members contract victories.  After many months of negotiating with Kindred Nursing Centers West and Olympia Convalescent Hospital, nursing home workers reached a contract agreement that brings dignity to the lives of hundreds of nursing home workers and those they care for.

 

“It’s been a rough but successful road in our fight for what is rightfully ours. It’s incredibly rewarding to see everyone excited about our new contract,” said Maria Soto (C.N.A., Village Square Nursing Center)
