Sheridan Manor workers approve contract

Workers at Sheridan Manor Nursing Home in the Town of Tonawanda who are members of 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East approved their first contract.

The two-year contract covers 80 workers who are certified nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses and unit clerks. It was unanimously approved by those who cast ballots. The workers voted last December to join the union, and contract negotiations began in January.

The deal includes a 6 percent wage increase, with a 2 percent increase retroactive to July 2014.
