Contract covers 80 Illinois nursing homes

Some 5,000 employees of 80 nursing homes in Cook and Lake counties were covered by a settlement between the Illinois Association of Health Care Facilities and the Service Employees. A Local 2 official said the accord provides for a "modest' 53-cent-an-hour wage increase over the 3-year term because priority was given to bolstering the health and welfare fund, which is "in the hole.' The new employer payment to the fund is $70 a month for full-time employees, up from $40.

The accord covers nurses aides, and dietary, housekeeping, and maintenance employees. Under the prior contract, the starting rate was $3.65 an hour and the average pay rate was $5.25, according to the union.
