Orlando, FL – After months of negotiations, Consulate Health Care and caregivers represented by 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East in Florida settled their contract with a significant victory that will increase the minimum wage from $8.05 to $10.40 benefitting over 700 workers and will put a large percentage of the caregivers on a path to earning a living wage of $15 an hour by 2020.

 

plaza_jungle_island_100px.jpgBack in October 2015, 1199SEIU Florida nursing home caregivers officially joined the Fight for $15 campaign as they came together to negotiate a new contract with five facilities owned by the Plaza Health Network in South Florida. By taking to the streets and advocating in their communities, the Plaza caregivers built significant momentum in the Fight for $15 movement and secured a new contract that made progress towards their goal of a $15 per hour minimum wage.

Mayor_Relagado_n_group_100x100.jpgFlorida is known to be a retirement destination for many seniors who come here to live the remainder of their life with the dignity and respect they deserve. There are currently more than 80,000 parents and grandparents living in Florida’s nursing homes, and a growing number receiving home care. The demand for long term care keeps growing, but Florida’s nursing homes and home care agencies don’t seem to be equipped to meet families’ needs… and they don’t seem to care.

Consulate_Bridget_Montgomery_100x150_feat.jpg“Winning the Fight for $15 and earning a living wage is a way to bring back dignity to the American worker," says Bridgette Montgomery of Mims, Florida who believes in the American Dream. "I think most Americans are like me. We want to live comfortably. We want to feed our families. Pay our bills. Contribute."
