Nursing home union workers rallied in Detroit on Saturday, demanding higher minimum wage, improved benefits and working conditions ahead of contract negotiations.
About 200 nursing home workers representing SEIU Healthcare Michigan, the largest union of nursing home professionals in the state, gathered Saturday at Wayne County Community College District campus wearing purple and chanting, “If we don’t get it, shut it down. Detroit is a union town.”
