NUHW members demand contract at Marin County nursing homes

May 31st, 2017

Workers at two Marin County nursing homes paid their boss an unexpected visit Wednesday to present new contract proposals that include raises and increased staffing levels to improve patient care.

Workers at San Rafael Healthcare and Wellness Center have been without a contract for three years. Novato Health Center workers are seeking their first contract after 18 months of negotiations. Janitors and housekeepers at the facility make less than $11.30 an hour.

Members handed their proposals to Wesley Rogers, an executive at Rockport Healthcare Services, a company that oversees the operations of both homes, which are controlled by Brius, LLC, California’s largest nursing home company.

They then rallied outside:
