Local 21 Planned Parenthood Workers Ratify New Contract
Over 300 members of UFCW Local 21 who work at over 20 Planned Parenthood locations in Washington state ratified a new contract during the first week of October.
The three-year contract ensures that no one falls below a 7.5 percent increase in wages through the duration of the agreement. The contract also includes a more robust Labor Management Committee, a pilot project to find solutions to the daily overtime many of the workers face, and new membership language that will build a stronger union.
