Wage Reopener Ratification Vote

    Hopefully, you have heard the great news about the upcoming salary increases. We negotiated a 2% increase that will occur in June, followed by a 1.5% increase in December! Now, we just have to vote on it. The ratification vote is set for Wednesday, March 18.

    We will be at all three sites as follows:

    Wednesday, March 18, 6:00 am – 9:00 pm:
    BGMC Solarium 2nd floor, C Building
    MFS Ground Floor Conference Room
    DMH Cafeteria Conference Room

    Please stop by and vote!


Tired of Complaining about Short Staffing?

    The Union is offering two upcoming opportunities to do something about it!

    SHORT STAFFING SOCIAL: Tell your stories to each other, record them, and share them with a state legislator. Putting a face on the atrocity of short staffing makes a difference!

    Friday March 27, 2015 8:30 AM- 12:30 PM at the Local
    Refreshments provided.


    GET ON THE BUS: Join CWA 1168 as we partner with healthcare workers from around the state in Albany for face to face conversations about the short staffing bill with the decision makers, our legislators.

    Tuesday May 12, 2015
    This is an all day event, exact times and location TBA.

    For more information on either event or to reserve your spot,
    call Sarah Buckley at the Local or email
