Providence St. Peter caregivers win raises, $15 minimum

The more than 600 Providence St. Peter nursing assistants, dietary and housekeeping staff, sterile processors, and other service workers united in SEIU Healthcare 1199NW have won across-the-board wage increases, a $15/hour minimum, health benefit security, and staffing and quality improvements.  The improvements are part of a new contract which union members ratified overwhelmingly in votes this week.
