Lake City Members Ratify New Agreement
Congratulations the the UFCW 1189 members at Lake City Nursing Home, who on December 11, 2020, voted to ratify a new 3-year collective bargaining agreement! The Union and Employer met multiple times to come to a tentative agreement that all parties believed was the best offer they could negotiate. Subsequently, the membership agreed by an overwhelming majority to ratify that tentative agreement. On 1/1/2021 all UFCW 1189 members will receive a 3% wage increase as well as an additional 1% wage increase effective 7/1/2021. The parties will meet in 2022 and 2023 solely for the purposes of negotiating future wages. Thank you to the Lake City bargaining committee of Kim Yarolimek, Diane Berktold, and Bonita Winter for all their work on getting to this agreement!
