HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Unionized nursing home workers say they've settled new contracts with 10 facilities, more than three months after their labor agreements expired.
The New England Health Care Employees Union, District 1199 says
the agreements include a wage increase and preserve or improve key
benefits for workers.
Contracts were settled with owners of facilities in New Britain,
Stamford, Windsor and West Hartford. The union also reached a deal
with Paradigm Healthcare Development, a new Connecticut corporation
that bought six homes formerly owned by bankrupt Marathon
Those homes are in Waterbury, Torrington, Prospect, New Haven,
West Haven and Norwalk.
In May, the union threatened a three-day strike, but withdrew
its notices at the request of legislative leaders.
