In person membership meeting pertaining to the New Wage Rates with Complete Care next Thursday, February 9 from 9am until 4pm in the auditorium outside of the Harborage.
We have reached an agreement with Complete Care after meeting with them for 3 days. We were able to negotiate wages we have never seen at this local before. We agreed to the following:
- We established our 1st wage scales for a 20 years of experience CNAs, Unit Clerks, Housekeeping, Laundry, Recreation Aides, Receptionists and Maintenance.
- We took CNAs with no experience from $15.25 an hour to hiring in at $19.00 and the top being 20 years at $21.50. All current CNA’s and Unit Clerks will be placed on the new scale based on their years of experience.
- New wage scale for Housekeeping, Recreation Aides & Receptionists went from $15 an hour to $16.00 an hour and top out at 20 years at $19.00. All current housekeepers, Recreation Aides & Receptionists will be placed on the new scale based on years of services.
- New wage scale for Laundry went from $15 an hour to $16 an hour and top out at 20 years at $19. All Current laundry aides will be placed on the new scale based on years of services.
- New wage scale for Maintenance went from $15.50 an hour to $17 an hour and top out at 20 years at $22 an hour. All current maintenance will be placed on the new scale based on years of services.
- CNA’s who were above the new scale they will get $.50 cents added to their base rate.
- Housekeepers that were above the new scale they will get $.25 cents added to their base rate or an $850 longevity bonus.
- Complete Care only wanted to give those above the new scale a onetime longevity bonus, but the team keep pushing for money added to their base rate and were successful at the last hour.
- New pay rates go into effect next pay cycle.
- This will help with retention and will help with recruitment as we face a staffing shortage.
