Workers at 3 Catholic Health hospitals approve labor contracts

Workers across three hospitals have approved union contracts with the Buffalo, N.Y.-based Catholic Health, reports Buffalo Business First.

Kenmore (N.Y.) Mercy Hospital workers voted Tuesday to approve a three-year contract that covers 95 technical workers, according to the article. Union officials said the ratified agreement maintains low-cost health benefits, and includes improvements in wages and staffing, reports Buffalo Business First.

Earlier this month, 200 registered nurses at Sisters of Charity Hospital's St. Joseph Campus in Cheektowaga, N.Y., also ratified a new contract; while registered nurses and service, technical and clerical associates at Mercy Hospital in Buffalo have also ratified two new contracts, the article states.

Workers at all three hospitals are represented by Communications Workers of America.
