Inter-Faith Care Center Negotiations

Your Union Contract is a legal document that contains provisions related to workers' rights and benefits. Your contract is the result of bargaining between the Union and the Employer beginning with the Union's initial proposal and followed by negotiations on items that affect your job. UFCW Local 1189 is committed to keeping you involved and informed.  Regular updates will be available online and by email. (If you would like to receive email updates please contact the office to ensure we have your current email address). When a tentative agreement is reached (or when we receive the Employer's final offer) the Union will schedule a time for you to vote on the proposed changes to your contract. After a majority of voting employees approve their contract language it then goes into effect. If you have questions on the process, please contact your Union Representative.


Negotiations are slowly, but successfully, moving with Inter-Faith Care Center. The Union submitted a package deal to the employer. It includes things like 4.25% wage increase across the board in year one and a reopener in year two; keeping personal days and birthday pay separate from the PTO; and removing the clause that does not allow members to move past the ten-year scale if hired after February 1, 2014. Our next meeting is scheduled for March 14, 2018. If you have questions, please contact Al Priolo (218-728-5174).
