SEIU 721 members at Clinica Monsenor Oscar A. Romero scored a huge victory with a new 3-year contract that raises wages, improves health benefits, strengthens contract language and more!
Workers at the two Clinica sites came together and showed our Union Solidarity by purpling up, wearing stickers and attending Unity Breaks. They’re celebrating a contract with a 10% increase in base wages, improved reimbursements for health expenses and additional funds for skills training.
Other highlights in this new contract include:
-Additional wage increase of 8% for all SUD positions (except for Child Care Provider) effective October 1, 2019.
-Additional 5% pay increase for all employees with more than 10-years’ employment with Clinica and to wage scale after 10-years.
-Additional 2% pay increase for all employees with more than 20-years’ employment with Clinica and creation of new 20-year step increase of 2% after 20-years.
-Stronger contract language re: security, bereavement leave and job descriptions.
Our work does not stop with this contract – we must continue to stand “Union Strong” for our clients and ourselves! When we fight, we win!
