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

NHFuning_feat.jpgOn Thursday, June 11, 1199SEIU members made their way to Trenton to educate New Jersey legislators about the critical need to improve Medicaid funding in the state budget. 1199ers say that lack of funding is jeopardizing quality care by contributing to low staffing levels, shortages of supplies, and poor job standards for caregivers who often struggle to get by earning less than $25,000 a year.

One hundred and seven healthcare workers at FountainView Care Center in
Lakewood, NJ, became the newest members of 1199SEIU on March 26 after voting
overwhelmingly in favor of forming a union.

iwdNJ_feat9-(1).jpgEvery March 8th, millions from around the globe come together to celebrate International Women’s Day, a holiday commemorating women’s struggles for equal rights, justice, and freedom. Originally established over a century ago as a remembrance of a 1908 garment workers strike protesting working conditions in New York City sweatshops, today it continues to be a time to reflect on past achievements and to prepare for challenges that lie ahead.

rumu_feat.jpgI am delighted to be celebrating with you this very special day, a day in which we honor women and their achievements – achievements which have enabled us to be where we are today. But it is also a day in which we recognize that the struggle for a just, equitable and fair society, for women and men, is far from over. In many ways in days such as these we are able to refine our ideas, sharpen our skills, bring together all those who share our dreams, and gather all our strengths to envision what kind of society we want, and how are we going to get there as a nation, as a world.
