New Hospitals – SEIU-UHW Contract Ratified

On Wednesday, July 23, 2014, the Hospitals’ employees represented by SEIU-UHW ratified a new three-year contract. The positive outcome was the culmination of negotiations that began earlier in the summer. The Hospitals’ bargaining team expressed their appreciation to the SEIU-UHW’s bargaining team for the constructive sessions that led to a “win-win” contract for SEIU-UHW members and the Hospitals, and also to their SEIU-UHW-represented employees for taking the time to vote. The new contract between the Hospitals and SEIU UHW will be in place through August 2017.
