This weekend Howard Center workers marched in solidarity with the UVMMC nurses, recognizing our shared workplace issues including safe staffing and wages that help to retain a reliable workforce.
This morning the Howard Center Union negotiation team meets with management to discuss ground rules going into negotiations. We will be bringing the proposal to management for Open Bargaining Sessions which, similar to the nurses would allow all Howard coworkers to attend and observe. This is a proposal that Howard Center workers voted 93% in favor of!
Solidarity in our struggle towards healthier communities and workforce.
