Wage Reopener Wins Bring Wage Increases to Philip Rock Center Workers


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.
