Nursing Home workers in our union were successful at lobbying the legislature in Salem, and are going to be seeing our biggest raise yet this year! We’ve come out in big numbers in 2013, 2014, and in 2015. We advocated for quality care and better funding for the programs that help our residents, and our work at the Capitol paid off yet again.

This year’s wage increase will be $1.07 per hour effective October 1, 2015.

Since 2013, we’ve seen the following increases:

$0.83/hr in October 2013 and new facility wage scale
$0.35/hr step increases in October 2014
$0.21/hr increase to the new facility wage scale in October 2014

That makes a total of $2.46 per hour in 2 years!


Here is the October 2015 Laurelhurst wage scale:
