Sept. 24th League Bargaining Bulletin


Ratification votes will take place next week.

It has been an extraordinary few months of negotiations, with some ups and downs. And on Thursday evening, September 23, we were able to come to a tentative contract agreement with the League. Credit goes to 1199 members from Long Island to Poughkeepsie—and everywhere in between—who took action and stood unified and strong, we did this without having to strike. The agreement meets the priority goals conveyed by members early on through contract surveys.

We will maintain our employer-paid health and pension benefits and we will receive a wage increase in every year of the contract!

THESE ARE HIGHLIGHTS. Please see a committee member or organizer for a copy of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA).

Wage increases and corresponding adjustments as follows:
10/1/21 2%
10/1/22 3%
10/1/23 3%

This agreement will not take effect until it is ratified by the majority of the League 1199SEIU membership. Contact your organizer to find out when and where the vote is taking place at your institution.
