Complete Care WinMarch 1, 2022
Members at ten New Jersey nursing homes just won a contract settlement with Complete Care Management, a significant victory in what had been a major campaign throughout 2021 against the state’s largest nursing home operator.
Last fall, members at Complete Care at Marcella Center in Burlington Twp. and Complete Care at Green Knoll in Bridgewater Twp.
went on a 24-hour strike to protest unfair labor practices and demand immediate improvements to their jobs. These strikes followed numerous other worksite actions throughout the year, including pickets in East Orange, Englewood, Monmouth Junction, Voorhees, and Westfield.
As members continued to build pressure against the company throughout the holidays, a contract settlement was finally reached.
In late January, members overwhelming ratified an agreement granting significant wage increases, immediate bonuses, greater paid time off, and major reductions to their cost of health insurance, among other improvements vitally needed for 1199 members and their families.
