July 2024 Update: Brooklyn Bridge Park summer picnic; Winning Raises at H+H

Winning Raises at H+H

Recently 85% of Local 768 titles in H+H have won increases.


Winning Raises at H+H

Recently 85% of Local 768 titles in H+H have won increases. Each hospital can set the salaries in a title within the pay ranges listed on the pay orders. 

To win, we stressed the importance of pay parity to keep members from leaving to go to other hospitals in the H+H system or the private sector. Our members put together proposals to show a living wage, housing cost, food costs, in comparison with pay into other cities. Our social workers kept up constant pressure demanding a fair and livable wage for the work they do.   

We started this work soon after we came into office. Thank you to all our members and to H+H and District Council 37 for working to make this happen.
