Healthcare Workers at 10 Mount Sinai Off-site Locations and One Urgent Care Site Vote to Join 1199SEIU all at Once

February 8, 2018

Mt-Sinai_CityMD_Victory_SM_feat.jpgThis week we welcome more than 110 new members from 10 Mount Sinai off-site locations and a City MD urgent care site into the 1199SEIU family.

The 95 Secretary Aides, Patient Liaisons, Medical Assistants, Front Desk Receptionists, Administrative Assistants, Patient Coordinators, Billing and Medical Records Coordinators and Systems Coordinators at Mount Sinai locations in Manhattan voted to join 1199.

At the same time, the 16 worker activists at the City MD on 125th Street in Manhattan became the first urgent care employees to vote for 1199SEIU membership.

By providing compassionate and professional care to people across New York City, 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 Mount Sinai off-sites and City MD voted to join our union to enable them to negotiate for 1199’s child care, job security, affordable quality healthcare and educational benefits.
