Four Toledo area nursing homes face a July 25 strike after the union representing about 300 workers have been unable to reach labor agreements, the Service Employees International Union announced yesterday.
Management at the four nursing homes Haborside Healthcare-Point Place, Harborside Healthcare-Sylvania, Mariner Health of Toledo, and Spring Meadows Extended Care want workers to redirect a portion of the hourly wages to cover health insurance, according to the union. The amounts range from 44 cents to 70 cents an hour, it said.
The SEIU, meanwhile, said it reached contract agreements for about 300 workers at Arbors of Toledo, Concord Care Center of Toledo, Ridgewood Manor, and Sunbridge West Toledo. Previous contracts at all eight nursing homes expire today.
