Kaleida Health Statement on Labor Negotiations

Released: 7/29/2022 6:00:00 PM

Kaleida Health today released the following statement regarding contract negotiations with CWA1168 and 1199SEIU:

“The negotiating teams have made a lot of progress over the last several months. We will continue our work to achieve a new master agreement that enhances benefits for all employees and restores us as the market leader in wages to help retain and recruit employees.

“We have said all along that we need to and will address staffing and wages in this contract. But the cost of doing that will be at least twice of what we spent for the master bargaining agreement in 2019. Considering our current financial condition and the enormous economic challenges in front of us, that’s significant.

“The current contract extension expires Sunday, July 31, 2022. There will not be another extension. Even after expiration, Kaleida Health will continue negotiating in good faith and we believe that CWA and 1199SEIU share this commitment.”
