On Tuesday, January 15, nearly 7,000 nursing home workers began bargaining new union contracts. Together, we are aiming to improve resident care, achieve family-sustaining wages and benefits and gain access to training opportunities that will help make our nursing home jobs high quality careers.
What’s more, as the healthcare system undergoes fundamental change,we need to have a voice in decisions that will affect our jobs as well as the industry as a whole.
And the stakes are high. Hear from Danielle Fox, a LPN from State College, PA about why coordinated bargaining matters to her and the residents she cares for each day. Together we are on the road to improving long term care!
