Mercy Springfield Members Ratify New Contract With Path to $15

Congratulations to all members with Springfield Regional Medical Center. A new contract was ratified last week that includes substantial wage increases for the bargaining unit, including a path to a $15 by 2022. Members will move immediately to $13 an hour, which may equate to a substantial raise.

Below are some of the new terms of the no-concessions contract

A $15 an hour minimum wage for all members by 2022
Annual wage increases for workers who already make $15/hr (and above) 
Language that will give members a personal day, in addition to current PTO time
A new $1 an hour premium for environmental services members 
Non-discrimination language that will protect workers in several areas 
Reimbursement for ServSafe Training for nutrition services members
A simplified 2-step grievance procedure 

Congratulations to the member bargaining team for standing united to bargain this new contract. We are stronger together.
