Cleveland Clinic workers score multiple wins with new contract

Workers at Local 1014L in Ohio built upon the many gains made in their 2019 contract with the ratification of their latest three-year agreement with Cleveland Clinic Akron General earlier this month.

Wage increases for the first year range between 2.5 and 20 percent, and if an employee’s wage is between steps they will be advanced to the next level. General wage increases for years 2 and 3 will be 3 percent, and many workers will receive both the GWI and a step increase in the next two years.

The bargaining committee also obtained improvements to tuition reimbursement, and retirees will receive the same discount on their health care programs as all other retirees of the Cleveland Clinic. And in a major leap forward, they secured paid time off for maternity and paternity leaves for full-time employees.

Members of Local 1014 L, which covers the technical, clerical, and support staff of the Cleveland Clinic Akron General, will also now have two health care plans with identical coverage.
