On Wednesday, October 16th, UFCW Local 152 members at Bacharach Institute for Rehabilitation in Galloway, New Jersey voted to ratify a new contract.
The new two-year contract introduces many new perks for our members. For example, members at Bacharach will see significant wage increases every year for the contract’s term. The contract introduces an opportunity for overtime pay for members who are called in to work on a scheduled PTO day. Additionally, a bonus of up to $50 will be offered to members for picking up “critical shifts,” based on scheduling needs and member seniority. Finally, the contract establishes 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, Union Representative Edna Inge, and Shop Stewards Janie Ross, Joann Adcock, and member Mark Silver. Great job!
