Local 5097 Bargaining Update #1 - Health Professionals & Allied Employees

Local 5097 Bargaining Update #1

Thank you to everyone that has taken the time to fill out the contract survey. It is of the utmost importance that we have your input for the upcoming negotiations with this new employer. If you have not filled out the survey yet, please see a union officer for a copy.

The Harborage/Complete Care has confirmed the following dates to start negotiations; March 13th, 21st and the 28th. It is imperative that all members get involved in this process so that we can maintain and protect our contract. We are facing a new employer and we must have solidarity to fight back against any possible take always. We need members on each unit to serve on the Contract Action Team so that we can communicate with everyone as this process plays out. If you would like to serve on the CAT team, please contact one of us ASAP.

You can print out a copy of the survey here.

Based on the contract surveys that we have received to date the team will be presenting proposals focused on:

  • Wages
  • Health & Safety
  • Staffing
  • Benefits

We will be putting out a member update after each bargaining session to keep you informed.

Again, if you have not filled out the contract survey please do so and return to one of the Union officers.
