Heritage Manager (Chisholm Health 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.

Updates

Negotiations at Heritage Manor are progressing slowly. The last time we met, the Employer offered an economic package that would result in substantive raises for some and not for others, as well as reducing the length of the current wage scales down to 10 years. Our response to the Employer was that this proposal was unacceptable for a number of reasons. First was that the market comparative data they were using wasn’t accurate for the Iron Range area.
