On Tuesday, May 10th, union nursing home workers held a strike line rally at Windsor Health and Rehab Center.
Caregivers at Windsor Health and Rehab Center are in their third week of strike, which began on April 22. Administrators have failed to present any proposal that would provide affordable health insurance for some of the poorest workers in Connecticut’s nursing home industry.
Current minimum wage for certified nursing assistants is $15 per hour. Dietary, housekeeping and laundry staff are barely starting at $14 per hour, and no access to affordable health insurance. The Union has also filed unfair labor practice charges against Windsor Rehab for hiring unlicensed staff and making them work for two to three weeks without wages.
Union nursing home workers have settled over 60 contracts with nursing home facilities in Connecticut. It’s time for Windsor Health and Rehab Center to present contract language that truly values the Black, Latina, white, and API men and women who work on the front lines of long-term care.
