State Tested Nurse Aides recently negotiated substantial pay increases at two health care facilities. The raises will make a difference to these employees and also increase retention and recruitment, which are important to quality care.
Congratulations to these workers who unified during negotiations:
• At Circleville Center, a nursing home in Circleville, Ohio, workers negotiated an extra $1.00/hour raise for all new and current nurse aides. The new pay scale will begin on December 29th, 2017.
• At Galion Pointe, a nursing home in Galion, Ohio, STNA’s successfully negotiated an extra $1.50/hour raise for all new and current nurse aides. The new pay scale began on November 26th, 2017.
While workers at non-union facilities have no ability to negotiate a raise, bargaining efforts led by these unionized health care workers offered the chance to change the wage scale at their facilities.
