To Absolut Care of Gasport families & community members:
You may have heard that RCA is in labor negotiations with a portion of our Absolut Care of Gasport workforce. As often happens in contract talks, most of the certified nursing assistants [CNAs], food service, housekeeping and activities staff involved voted to establish an option for informational picketing today.

Before we explain our negotiating positions, we want to assure you that the picketing will have no effect on the fine care we deliver to our residents or our neighborly interactions. RCA will draw as needed on our other Western New York facilities to maintain full staffing during this time. If you have any concerns or questions, please call RCA Regional Vice President Andrea Czora at 716.650.7755.

We also want to be transparent with you about these management-union negotiations, because we want our staff focused on caring for our residents, knowing they can build their career here with fair salaries and benefits.

We met twice in May with representatives of the union, known as 1199SEIU, and also yesterday. We have great respect for the hard-working, front-line employees who care for our residents. RCA demonstrated this throughout the COVID-19 pandemic by being among the first health-care companies in the state to create a $5-an-hour bonus for our employees working in a COVID area. That consideration is emblematic as well of our approach to the current negotiations for a new contract for the 45 staff members at Absolut Care of Gasport.

Since RCA took over Absolut’s operations in early March 2020, we:

  • increased the starting wage rates for these employees by 3%
  • raised the CNA rate from $12.94 to $13.35 an hour in April 2020
  • negotiated the rate to $13.70 for CNAs in August 2020
  • voluntarily enhanced employees’ health-insurance coverage in March 2021
  • bargaining unit employees hired prior to Jan 1, 2020 also received a 25-cents-per-hour raise on June 1, 2020 and again on Jan. 1, 2021

In the last year, meanwhile, RCA established three other contracts with 1199SEIU locals at four facilities in Western New York and one in Painted Post. The employees ratified all the contracts, which will pay the CNAs $14.35 an hour. At the negotiating table, RCA offered our Gasport CNAs $14.45 an hour and $14.50 an hour for cooks.”

Beyond the hourly rate, the company also offered:

  • longevity bonuses of up to $600 per person after contract ratification
  • increased pension contributions
  • double-time for work at Christmas
  • improved wage progressions

RCA continues to respect our employees at Absolut Care of Gasport and we expect to agree to a fair and acceptable contract as soon as possible that enhances employees’ salaries and benefits.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
