Nursing Home Workers Enter Second Week of Strike

700 Chicago nursing home workers have entered their second week of the strike, and they have been joined by members of the Chicago Teachers Union and other local labor groups. The strikers come from Infinity Health Care, where “employees have been without a contract since June, and say chronic short staffing and lack of PPE are among their many concerns.”

Strikers are asking for a flat starting wage with hazard pay. Their strike comes after claims that Infinity Healthcare received over 12 million dollars from the Federal CARES Act during the Covid-19 pandemic. Strikers will continue to stand behind the picket line until they can return to the bargaining table.
