1199 Position on NYS 24-Hour Cases

1199SEIU is committed to fighting for the needs of our members and all workers, and that includes making sure they have the tools they need to work and live with dignity.

We wholeheartedly believe that this dignity extends to workers being fairly compensated for the hours they work. Converting 24-hour cases to two twelve-hour shifts would cost $1 billion, which must be allocated by the Governor and State Legislature.

We are helping to ensure our members’ rights to be compensated properly under the current law, while always fighting to secure additional state and federal funding for home care members. In addition, the Union continues to pursue the claims of any members who were not paid properly under the current live-in rules.

Our members and their needs are our top priority, and we will remain vigilant in fighting to ensure they get every penny to which they are entitled.
