“We’re on strike for fair wages and workloads,” said Luis Gonzalez in a statement. “We keep this place running. We put ourselves at risk every day, and we deserve to be able to put food on the table for the holidays.”
Ron Ruggiero, president of SEIU Local 105, said the tentative agreement reached after talks Saturday morning includes a win for workers on the issue of pay after “40 years of wage stagnation.”
“A huge sticking point was around wages and that was a major achievement today,” Ruggiero said. “There are also workload issues that got resolved.”
The agreement reached contains raises amounting to $4 an hour over the three years of the contract, along with workload protections and increased time off.
