1199SEIU members attended the White House Conference on Aging. The White House has held a Conference on Aging each decade since the 1960s to identify and advance actions to improve the quality of life of older Americans.
Inspired by Personal Care Attendants (PCAs) who won a $15 wage in negotiations with the state last month, workers at Medical Resources Home Health Corp. have voted to unionize – despite a vicious, illegal anti-union campaign waged by executives at the home care agency.
1199SEIU members are ramping up visibility in the city of Boston. Twelve 1199SEIU members working at Boston Medical Center, Morton Hospital, and Good Samaritan Hospital were featured in a new campaign of subway advertisements at Tufts Medical Center MBTA station.
