Today, we delivered our petitions to ThedaCare demanding better wage increases, retro pay, and to stop union busting! Thank you to everyone who signed the petition!
Several members had a chance to voice their concerns of how the low wages at ThedaCare mean staff are more likely to leave and the impacts that has on patient care. We heard of the struggles in health care costs, child care costs, and general costs of living. We also addressed the inequitable wage increases ThedaCare proposed that generally leave those with more years of service with the lowest increases. We hope that ThedaCare heard our message in preperation for our next negotiation session.
Our next negotiation session will be on Friday, September 6, 2019 starting at 8:30am. We’ll be at the Red Lion Hotel in the Kimberly Room (basement). Stop by anytime in the morning.
We hope everyone had a Happy Labor Day! As a reminder, if you worked an unscheduled shift yesterday, you are entitled to the Unscheduled Weekend Incentive! This incentive starts at 3pm on Fridays and runs through 7am on Mondays and includes holidays.
Together we win!
