Workers in the Technical Unit of Northern Dutchess Hospital join the 1199SEIU family

May 3, 2021

We are proud to welcome more than 80 new members who work in the Technical Unit of Northern Dutchess Hospital in Rhinebeck, New York, into the 1199SEIU family.

The newest members of our union decided decisively to join 1199. By providing compassionate and professional care to people across the Hudson Valley, our new colleagues embody the spirit of the 1199 local.

1199SEIU is the largest healthcare workers’ union in the US, with more than 400,000 members in five states along the Eastern seaboard. We are one of the fastest growing unions in the country.

As well as having a larger say in their working lives, the newest members at Northern Dutchess voted to join our union to enable them to negotiate for 1199’s child care, job security, affordable quality healthcare and educational benefits.
