Presbyterian Home Employees Vote to Join Local One

Presbyterian Home of CNY Employees Vote to Join Local One

On Friday, January 19, 2018, after a long anti-union campaign from their employer, the brave employees of Presbyterian Home located in New Hartford, NY voted in favor of joining UFCW Local One's Professional and Health Care Division.  The unit consists of LPNs, CNAs, Housekeeping, Secretaries, Service & Maintenance and Dietary Workers.

"We are delighted to welcome our newest members from the Presbyterian Home.  This Organizing Committee had to endear an onslaught of anti-union efforts, unfair labor practice charges, illegal captive audience meetings, benefit promises and more."  Frank DeRiso, President of UFCW Local One said.  "It's nice to see that they stuck together and worked so hard for this." He added.

Once certified, an online survey will be sent out, a proposal meeting will be held and a bargaining committee with be elected. 

A special thank you to Vin Cavo our former Organizing Director, who retired last year, but still worked everyday on this campaign.  Another special thank you to Toni Bono, an organizer who also retired last year, but worked everyday on this effort.
