Today we welcome more than 30 new members from St John’s Riverside Medical Center into the 1199SEIU family.

The Medical Technologists at the hospital in Yonkers, New York, voted unanimously to join our union.

By providing compassionate and professional care to people in Yonkers, our St John’s colleagues embody the spirit of the 1199 local.

1199SEIU is the largest healthcare worker’s 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 St John’s voted to join our union for 1199’s pension, job security, affordable quality healthcare and educational benefits.
