Kaleida strike votes planned

Three unions representing more than 7,000 workers at Kaleida Health facilities will conduct strike authorization votes next week.

The votes involve Communications Workers of America Local 1168, 1199 SEIU United Health Care Workers East and International Union of Operating Engineers Local 17. Voting by the workers will take place June 10 to 12.

If approved, the union bargaining committee would have the authority to issue a 10-day advance notice of a strike, should the bargaining committee decide to take that step.

Kaleida and the union bargaining committee have agreed to a June 21 contract extension. The two sides are set to resume bargaining June 13.
