Good Samaritan Nurses at Comforcare in Austin Ratify Increased Wages
Nurses ratified new wage rates for RN and LPNs working at Good Samaritan's Austin facility. The Agreement increased the hiring and experience wage grid and provided the majority of nurses (those hired before 12/1/2017) with $ .65/hour increases. Nurses still in their first year of service with the company would receive increases equal to the new wage grid.
No changes were made to the Flex Nurse position that was recently created and agreed to by the Employer and the Union as a solution to filling shift vacancies.
