Current Campaigns

Every day, the nearly 450,000 healthcare workers of 1199SEIU stand united to secure quality care and good jobs for all. The members of 1199SEIU work in settings, including home care, nursing homes, hospitals and clinics. Our members work in service, maintenance, technical, professional and nursing jobs. Our union is dedicated to the ideals that make it possible for every working person to create the life they envision for themselves and their family. We are continually mobilizing to call attention to and fight against every form of injustice. Through our Political Action Contributions (PAC), 1199SEIU fights for the needs of our communities by helping to elect working-family-friendly candidates and craft worker-friendly legislation and policy. Working people continue to face many challenges. Join us as we make our voices heard!

CARE NOT CHAOS - Defend Affordable Care!

Call your Member of Congress NOW and tell them: Do not repeal the Affordable Care Act without a plan in place to ensure access to healthcare for all Americans. Don’t forget to share your own experience of why access to quality and affordable healthcare is important to you and your community!

FIGHT FOR $15

Homecare and healthcare workers have dedicated their lives to providing quality care, but too many caregivers are trapped in poverty.

WOMEN'S MARCH

This January, millions of women, our allies and our children will send a powerful message to Trump's administration that we are strong and united, and we won't tolerate attacks on our communities! Join 1199SEIU At The Women's March on Washington.

CLEAN WATER, AIR & ENERGY

1199SEIU has been at the forefront of reporting and activism on the destructive effects of one of humanity’s greatest challenges — the ravages of climate change. We have long worked with environmental organizations such as Riverkeeper, a New York State organization that protects the Hudson River from contamination.
