On Monday, September 30th, UFCW Local 152 members at Autumn Lake Healthcare in Ocean View, New Jersey voted unanimously to ratify a new contract.
The new three-year contract introduces many new perks for our members. With the newly ratified contract, members at Autumn Lake will see wage increases every six months for the life of the contract, in addition to a longevity bonus for long-term employees. The contract also preserves the affordable health care plan and has added New Jersey Sick Leave language.
Congratulations to our members and the Negotiating Committee! This included Assistant Director of Collective Bargaining Dan Ross, Jr, Director of Field Services Peggy Kelly, and Shop Stewards Delilah Warner, Shawnty Richardson, and Bobbi Ajisola. Great job!
