09282015_MinimumWageChallenge_RepThompson_100px.jpgIf our politicians really care about Florida’s workers, they should know what it is like to live in our shoes, trying to feed our families, pay rent and do our work on a minimum wage. 18 legislators in Florida and our Executive Vice President, Monica Russo, accepted the Minimum Wage Challenge, and last week they lived on minimum wage for 5 days.

This is a result of the lobbying of low-wage workers, including 1199SEIU Florida members, who went to Tallahassee a couple of weeks ago to ask state legislators for a living wage of $15 an hour.

Consulate members take action and get their bargaining dates

Recently, 1199SEIU Florida members at 17 Consulate Healthcare facilities throughout the state took action to demand bargaining dates which the company was failing to set. In just a few days, leaders were able to move petitions, collecting over 900 signatures before marching on their administrators to give them the petitions.

PlazaWorkers_Oct2015_feat.jpgAfter decades of loyal service, the majority brave caregivers at Plaza Health Network don’t even make $15/hour to care for their families. However, Plaza and its new CEO, Elaine Bloom, will tell you that they value your work. How can they say that? Members want to know how Plaza Health Network can agree to pay the federal government $17 million to settle a Department of Justice investigation for Medicare fraud, but can’t pay its caregivers what they deserve. Something has got to change!
