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

alaris_going-to-work_feat.jpgTwenty 1199SEIU caregivers returning to work after a 3-day strike were illegally locked out by their employer, Alaris Health, in the early morning of Friday, September 19. 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.

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.
