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.

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.

1199ers at four Alaris Health nursing homes in New Jersey have given notice to their employer of their intent to hold a series of three-day strikes beginning on Tuesday, September 16.

alarisk-newspaper-feat.jpgOn Thursday, August 7, the caregivers of 1199SEIU launched a public information campaign to educate New Jersey residents about quality care and workers’ rights concerns at the for-profit nursing home chain Alaris Health. Starting this week, ads are running in several Hudson and Bergen County, NJ, newspapers, and a website, Alarisk.com, provides further information and a petition for New Jerseyans to take action.
