Nursing Home Union Caregivers On Strike

Union nursing home caregivers are on strike demanding better wages and benefits and lower nurse to patient ratios. The workers will not go into work until the nursing home administration will make changes to their agreements. In the meantime, the administration has hired replacements to maintain their facilities.

Caregivers say a nurse to patient ratio of 1 to 13 is too many patients to care for well. Administrators will not move from their current stance. But advocates of the strike say “As caregivers, they need quality healthcare for themselves and their families.” For more, read the story.
