Last weekend, more than 400 SEIU members attended the summer union picnic with their families at Como Park! There was plenty of food, fun, prizes and ride wristbands for kids at Como Town. St. Paul mayor Melvin Carter was on hand to help celebrate our members and all of the hard work and care that members provide to the community every day.
Today, the minimum wage in Minneapolis also goes up! For workers at large businesses (with more than 100 employees) the new minimum wage is $12.25 per hour. For small businesses (with fewer than 100 employees) the new minimum wage is $11.00 per hour.
The increases to the Minneapolis minimum wage are part of the planned phase-in of a $15 minimum wage that was adopted by the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Our union led the fight for a $15 minimum wage and we plan to use this upward pressure on wages to raise pay for healthcare workers statewide! One of the reasons the raise for home care workers statewide was more than 10% this contract was because of the upward pressure on wages from the Minneapolis ordinance. And just last week, Allina finally agreed to raise pay for all workers across the system to a $15 minimum wage, regardless of whether the worker was in Minneapolis or Owatonna. As $15 becomes the new standard for minimum wage work, our members are already planning our next fights for real pay increases!

Today, the new contract for Minnesota’s home care workers goes into effect! The new contract provides millions of dollars for raises, new benefits and training programs! Home care workers have come a long way since forming their union five years ago, when the minimum wage was $6.30 an hour with no benefits. Starting today the minimum wage goes up to $13.25 (up from $12) and new benefits include more holiday pay, PTO, paid training programs and more. Congratulations to all home care worker on this well-deserved raise and contract.
Thank you to all the members who served on the bargaining team, who came to lobby day and helped ensure the new agreement was ratified by the legislature.
