We won our new IP contract – let’s celebrate!
This is a historic contract that took the combined effort of thousands of members. We’ll all get at least $0.50/hr this July and again next July. (If you have at least 7 years of full-time experience and 14001 hours, you’ll see your pay increase to more than $14/hr in the next 2 years.) And there’s more:
Additional raises of $0.25/hr for home care certification and for advanced training;
Increased mileage reimbursement starting in 2014;
Cost of certification paid;
A modest increase in paid time off; and
Continuation of the gains we made in previous contracts.
