Workers Settle Contract at 10 Bay Area Nursing Homes
Date:7/2/2008

ionally, it includes several employment security guarantees, which are the first of their kind in an industry often marked by instability and high turnover.

Mariner also agreed to a code of conduct for organizing drives at facilities where workers are not yet represented by a union. The agreement embraces the model that UHW has established with the hospital industry in California.

The workers must vote to ratify the agreement before it will take effect.

The contract represents the first major agreement reached during UHW's historic 2008 campaign, in which more than 75,000 healthcare workers throughout California will negotiate new contracts. Healthcare workers at more than 100 nursing homes and over 50 hospitals are seeking new agreements in what may be the largest-ever coordinated bargaining effort in the healthcare industry.

Building on the success of this coordinated approach, UHW has proposed bringing all healthcare workers in California into a single local of SEIU, rather than keeping them scattered across several different locals.

"The verdict is clear: healthcare workers are stronger when we're united in a single union," said Sal Rosselli, president of UHW. "It's our ability to bring hospital, nursing home, and homecare workers together that leads to victories such as this one. The longer we remain divided, the harder it will be to achieve real equality and improve care across California."

With more than 150,000 members, SEIU United Healthcare Workers-West is the fastest-growing healthcare union in the United States. We represent healthcare workers in all job classifications and all healthcare settings, including hospitals, homecare, nursing homes and clinics. Our mission is to achieve high-quality healthcare for all.
