Veracare Nursing Home ULP Strike MLK Day

January 15, 2018

Hosted by SEIU Healthcare Illinois & Indiana

Join striking nursing home workers on the line at 6am OR 2pm to show your support.

“We’ve got to give ourselves to this struggle until the end” – Martin Luther King Jr #MLKDayStrike

The workers at Veracare Nursing Home in Burbank have been trying for nearly a year to get a fair contract, and after numerous labor violations they have made the courageous decision to engage in a one day strike against these unfair labor practices!

“We’ve got to give ourselves to this struggle until the end,” Martin Luther King Jr. told a group of striking sanitation workers the night before he was assassinated in 1968. “Nothing would be more tragic than to stop at this point in…we’ve got to see it through.”

These workers have had their years of seniority erased, their accumulated vacation hours stolen, and their union rights violated. The workers at Veracare intend to see their struggle through until they get the fair contract they deserve and invite you to join them!
