Lee, Sr. has been named to the top Massachusetts leadership post for 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, the most politically active and fastest-growing union in Bay State, following the promotion of Veronica Turner. 1199SEIU members include hospital, nursing home, homecare, and clinic employees. While 1199SEIU remains the fastest-growing union in Massachusetts, Lee has vowed to emphasize a “doubling down” on the union’s organizing and recruitment efforts. 1199SEIU is the largest union local in the country with more than 400,000 members across the East Coast.

BMC_small_blog.pngAs part of the growing Fight for $15 movement, 1199ers at Boston Medical Center became the first hospital workers in the city of Boston to achieve a $15 per hour starting wage! Meanwhile, Tufts Medical Center employees – who have been organizing to join the healthcare workers’ union, 1199SEIU, for over a year – scored a major victory. Under increasing pressure from hospital staff that have joined the Fight for $15 and a Union, Tufts management agreed it would also raise wages for all workers to $15/hour. Tufts has come under fire for paying wages that for many job titles are not competitive with other area hospitals.

In that time, 1199SEIU has become the state’s most politically active union and the fastest-growing union in the nation.
