The new agreement is retroactive to July 31 and expires in March 2023.
Ahead of this morning's agreement, some group home operators reportedly had started to transfer residents to other facilities.
“RegalCare operator Eliyahu Mirlis should not be allowed to run any nursing homes in Connecticut and he should be banned altogether from the health care business," declares union president Rob Baril.

The union maintains that workers at 51 nursing homes have remained on the job so far despite their contracts having expired on March 15.
At issue are wages – SEIU is seeking raises of 4 percent in 2019 and another 4 percent in 2020 – and inadequate staffing ratios at nursing homes.
