Sierra Vista Rehab RNs Win Raises, Improved Working Conditions

August 21, 2014

Registered Nurses at Sierra Vista Rehabilitation Center in Highland, Calif., ratified their first contract with management in August. Four nurses originally approached SEIU 121RN about joining 121RN in 2012 because they were working nearly non-stop with lower pay than comparable facilities and few benefits.

Now with five RNs in the Bargaining Unit, the nurses will be placed on an initial years of experience wage scale, and will receive across-the-board raises of 1 percent twice a year, for a total of up to 18 percent over the four-year contract.
