BUFFALO, N.Y. — CWA union members have voted to approve a new four-year contract with Catholic Health.
The union says 94% of its members voted to ratify the contract Monday, affecting more than 2,500 registered nurses along with service, technical and clerical staff at Kenmore Mercy Hospital, Mercy Hospital of Buffalo and Sisters of Charity Hospital.
CWA workers went on strike back on Oct. 1, asking Catholic Health for more money and better working conditions.
The new contract will allow Catholic Health to hire more workers, and almost every worker in the union at those hospitals will see a boost in their paycheck and have access to better benefits.
Workers are set to return to Mercy Hospital Wednesday.
