Catholic Health Facilities and SEIU Ratify Three New Contracts
Associates at Catholic Health’s St. Joseph Campus, McAuley Residence and St. Catherine Labouré Health Care Center represented by SEIU 1199, have ratified new labor contracts. SEIU members at St. Joseph Campus agreed to a four-year contract and McAuley Residence agreed to a one-year contract during separate ratification votes held yesterday while those at St. Catherine Labouré agreed to a one-year contract during a vote on July 28.
“We are pleased we could come to terms on new contracts and still position Catholic Health to meet the financial challenges we continue to see in healthcare,” said William B. Pryor, Chief Administrative Officer for Catholic Health. “We worked with SEIU to negotiate contracts that provide our associates with competitive wages and benefits despite the constraints healthcare providers are facing due to the ongoing effects of the COVID pandemic and continuous changes in healthcare. These new agreements demonstrate the respect and appreciation we have for our associates and allow us to continue providing our patients and residents with the highest quality care and service.”
The contracts cover technicians at St. Joseph Campus, licensed practical nurses and services personnel at St. Catherine Labouré Health Care Center, and service and maintenance staff at McAuley Residence.
