State Announces Agreement to Avoid Nursing Home Strike

State officials said Thursday they had reached a deal with nursing home operators and a labor union representing Connecticut health care workers to narrowly avoid a strike that would have resulted in work stoppage at 26 nursing homes on Friday.

The four-year agreement between the state, SEIU District 1199, and nursing home operators would increase funding for the nursing homes by $267 million, enabling the facilities to increase the hourly pay of workers and provide better benefits.

Gov. Ned Lamont announced the “basic agreement” at the start of a press briefing, during which his chief of staff reported that workers at several nursing homes signaled they would postpone their planned strikes.

The administration later released a statement reporting that it had received formal strike postponement notices affecting all 26 nursing home facilities where employees had been expected to strike Friday.
