Pay hike coming for GMU food service workers
Over 200 Sodexo food service workers, cashiers, bakers, cooks, catering workers, utility workers, drivers and receivers at George Mason University have ratified their first-ever union contract with 32BJ SEIU. Under the agreement that expires on June 30, 2024, workers will see their wages increase by an average of 12% and employer contributions toward health insurance premiums will increase to 80%. Current hourly wages, which range from $10 to $23, will increase to a range of $13 to $25. For the first time, part-time employees will receive three paid holidays and the workers who currently receive no paid breaks, all will be given 15 minute paid breaks.
