UFCW Local 1189 members working at Galtier, New Brighton Health & Rehab and Rose of Sharon nursing homes overwhelmingly rejected the Employer's offer. Negotiations had taken place over the last couple of weeks with Fortis Labor Relations. The Employer's offer included a 1% wage increase. The Union will request the Employer to return to the bargaining table. We will continue to keep you updated.
On April 20, 2017 the UFCW Union committee and negotiating team met with the company for the first scheduled bargaining meeting. The first set of meetings started off with a round of introductions before each party explained their proposal. The Union proposal, which was derived from a combination of best practices, WFC surveys and results from listening sessions was presented item by item to the company.
