Tentative Agreement Reached with Villa Healthcare

UFCW 1189 and its Bargaining Committee have come to a tentative agreement with Villa Healthcare -- Galtier, Rose of Sharon, New Brighton, and New Brighton LPNs.  The committee worked diligently to bring forward the best agreement they could.  The committee was able to secure on average a 2.5% wage increase while lifting up the starting wage rate for CNAs and Cooks to $15/hour.  They were also able to secure stronger contract language for infectious disease control and more flexibility toward vacation accruals.    Postcards will be sent out this week for ratification votes scheduled the week of 8/24/2020.  As always if you have questions or concerns about the CBA, contact Union Representative James Westin.  Please click on the link for a detailed overview of the proposed contract changes:  PDF icon Villa TA 2020.pdf
