New York City's longest health-care strike ends.
The two 5-percent pay increases will be applied to annual salaries ranging from $15,247 for orderlies to $33,962 for social workers. Other types of workers involved include clerks, technicians, and aides. The accord also provides that the workers will have alternate weekends off. Management had offered 26 weekends off per year, although not necessarily every other weekend, and a $20 premium for every weekend worked beyond the 26. Another provision freezes starting pay for new employees, beginning with the second year. The terms were expected to set a pattern for settlements between the union and about 24 other institutions when current agreements expire on October 1.
