United to the end, Teamster members have voted to approve our new contract at Rhode Island Hospital by a 97 percent margin. Members voted 562 Yes to 17 No to ratify a contract that delivers job security and $19 million in wages and benefits.
This contract victory belongs to the members who united for a fair contract. We did more than win a better contract. We’ve built a stronger union and forged new alliances with community groups, other unions and public allies. We have found our voice and we will keep using it to speak out for good jobs and quality care.
