SEIU Local 1 Homewood-Flossmoor Food Service Workers Ratify Strong New Contract

Food service workers win new agreement with good raises, better benefits 

HOMEWOOD – By an overwhelming margin, nearly 25 SEIU Local 1 food service workers ratified a strong new contract that guarantees the good raises and better benefits they need to support their families.

“We work hard feeding thousands of children at Homewood-Flossmoor High School every day, but we were struggling to put food on the table for our own families,” said SEIU Local 1 food service worker Grace Hill. “Because we fought for our students, our families and our community, we won a better future.”

“Local 1 food service workers came together and showed they are essential in keeping Homewood-Flossmoor High School running each and every day,” said SEIU Local 1 Vice President LaToyia Comb. “This strong new agreement will help lift up the entire Homewood-Flossmoor community.”

The new three-year union contract guarantees:

  • Annual wage increases for food service workers, which will help Homewood-Flossmoor food service workers support their families and keep up with the cost of living
  • Protecting healthcare while costs across the country rise
  • Better benefits including reimbursement for uniform costs and an additional holiday
