On Tuesday, March 22nd, 2022, UFCW Local 152 members at Crothall Healthcare in Cape May Court House, New Jersey ratified a strong new union contract.
The new agreement substantially increased starting rates and immediately provided all members who were above the new rate an above-average wage increase! It also nearly doubled the shift differential for second and third-shift workers.
In addition to these improvements, the three-year contract also maintains health insurance without member cost-sharing and continues Employer-paid pension contributions. Members who work four or more hours past their regularly scheduled shift will now receive an additional break. Finally, language was established to comply with the New Jersey Sick Leave Law.
Congratulations to our members, and to the wonderful Negotiating Committee who worked very hard on this contract! The committee consisted of Assistant Director of Collective Bargaining Lisa Sanders, Director of Field Services Peggy Kelly, and Shop Steward John McCabe. Job well done!
UFCW Local 152 proudly represents thirty workers at Crothall Healthcare, a division of Compass Group USA at Cape Regional Medical Center. Our members mainly work in environmental services.
