Our CWA 1168 brothers and sisters at two Planned Parenthood locations: WNY and Central NY have been unified in bargaining and now have good results! They have reached a Tentative Agreement (TA) on 2-3-22. If the members vote in favor of the TA they will be united under one contract that includes wage increases, improved health insurance and many more gains and would be in effect until 12-31-2024! They will hold their ratification vote on 2-21-22 and 2-22-22. Congratulations to those who have bargained to make this TA a reality.


In another win, our brothers and sisters in Kaleida clinical engineering have also reached a TA! After 17 months they have made significant improvements in working conditions. If their members vote in favor of the TA they will maintain their health and dental insurance, retirement and have significant wage increases. Their ratification vote will be held on 3.2.22. Congratulations to this team; on their hard work at the bargaining table and upon coming to a tentative agreement.
