9 recent nursing home contract disputes

Here are nine nursing homes where workers are picketing, have gone on strike recently or are threatening to strike:

  1. Twenty therapists at Beaver, Pa.-based Brighton Rehabilitation and Wellness Center voted to send an unfair labor practice strike notice for the failure of its owner, Cape Canaveral, Fla.-based Comprehensive Health Services, to bargain in good faith.

  2. Members of the 1199 SEIU union voted to authorize a weeklong strike at four rural New York nursing homes: Salamanca Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, Eden Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, Houghton Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, and Dunkirk Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.

  3. More than 500 workers from seven Detroit-based nursing homes managed by Ciena planned to strike over contract negotiations.

  5. More than 80 nursing home workers at Meyersdale (Pa.) Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center and Western Reserve Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center in Erie, Pa., both owned by Guardian Healthcare, sent strike notices after new owner Abraham Smilow refused to accept the existing union contract.

  6. Union workers at nursing homes in Erie and Meyersdale, Pa., sent a notice to strike starting March 1 to the homes' current owner, Guardian Healthcare, and future owner, Abraham Smilow, after learning the facilities' future owner does not plan to accept contacts agreed upon in August.

  7. More than 200 nursing home workers at four Rehabilitation and Nurse Center facilities across Western New York picketed after their contract expired Dec. 31 and a new one has yet to be signed.
