The recent wage reopener at Philip J. Rock Center and School was unanimously ratified by members represented by SEIU Local 73.
Local 73 members will see a three tier increase in regards to years of service between 2-6% as well as a $1,500 signing bonus per bargaining unit member.
“Having a union allowed us to fight for and win these increases and signing bonus,” said Robert Anderson, Chief Steward. “This will make a significant difference in the lives of our members at Philip J. Rock Center and School.”
“These wage increases are a direct result of our power as a union,” said Sherice Powell – Wooders, Steward. “If we did not have a union, then we couldn’t stand up for ourselves.
