Please sign our letter calling on Complete Care Management (CCM) to bargain in good faith with the unions representing its staff at nursing homes they recently bought in New Jersey. Instead of honoring the contracts negotiated with the previous owners, CCM has cut heath insurance benefits, educational and retirement benefits, and paid time off. These essential workers have been on the front lines during the pandemic, putting themselves and their families at risk. They should be treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.

Workers at several facilities throughout the Garden State owned by Complete Care Management are calling on CCM to bargain in good faith and to divulge information about how they are allocating the millions of dollars of additional Medicaid funds provided by the state due to the pandemic that were earmarked for increased salaries and benefits.

Now it's time to support them. Please sign our letter!
