The 1199SEIU New Jersey Division was formed out of the merger of the former SEIU Local 1199 NJ with 1199SEIU in October 2008. The New Jersey Division, with nearly 8,000 workers, represents the largest percentage of long term care workers in the State. Our nursing home members include certified nurses assistants, LPNs, Recreational Aides, Maintainence and Housekeepers. We also represent hundreds of Home Health Aides who also provide direct care to elderly and disabled individuals throughout the state.

Number of Members: 8,000
Number of Delegates: 250
Number of Facilities: 78



New Jersey Delegates

Everyday, 1199SEIU members are continuing to build on our historic growth in New Jersey by uniting and organizing healthcare and home care workers across the state.

MILLY-SILVA-facebook_feat.jpgAs the number of confirmed Ebola cases in West Africa grows beyond 10,000 and as the first cases appear in the US, many fear the rise of a global pandemic. In order to protect New Jersey and the nation overall, it is vital that officials respond to the crisis in ways that are scientifically justified, effective, ethical, and safe. (Yet as we’ve witnessed over the past week, many elected leaders around the nation appear to be acting more out of political expediency rather than sound, informed judgment. I would eliminate this sentence as we don’t want to be seen as implicitly criticizing Cuomo).

NJ-Mayor-feat3.jpgHundreds of 1199SEIU members rallied in Union City, NJ on Tuesday, Sept 30 for the second time in three weeks to support 450 workers at Alaris Health in their quest for a contract. Only this time, 1199SEIU members were also demanding that Alaris let two dozen workers that the company has illegally locked out of their jobs come back to work.

The workers, who are employed as certified nursing assistants, together have more than 100 years of service at Alaris nursing facilities.
