June 29th, 2012

Keck Medical Center Sodexo Dietary workers who are members of NUHW bargained a great contract this week, with improvements including:

  • 2 percent raises at ratification
  • 2 percent raises in 6 months
  • 3 percent raises in year 2
  • 4 percent raises in year 3
  • Increases in minimum rates
  • Ratification bonuses
  • 5% reduction in individual HMO and PPO costs
  • Additional float holiday

Hilda Pena, Tray Line, was overjoyed: “In NUHW, we won 11% in raises and made economic progress at a time when SEIU is taking workers backwards. By staying united, we even reduced our share of healthcare costs, putting money back in our pockets!”
