The union maintains that workers at 51 nursing homes have remained on the job so far despite their contracts having expired on March 15.
Nursing homes that serve Medicaid patients would receive a 2% rate increase in July 2019, a 1% bump in October 2020 and a 1% raise in January 2021.
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.
