Victory for Martindale Retirement Home workers!

September 23, 2016 at 10:23am

Congratulations to some of the newest members of UFCW Local 175 from Martindale Retirement Home who fought to bring justice to their workplace by joining the union. The organizing drive lasted approximately six months and workers cited wages, benefits, harassment and scheduling as their motivation for contacting the union.

Our new members at the retirement residence in Milton are RPNs, PSWs, Kitchen Services and Housekeepers.

These workers are there to bring dignity and independence to our loved ones when they need it most.  They now stand united to demand respect from their employer. And the union is going to stand with them to achieve that.
