Hudson Valley/Capital Region Members Take Action on Nuvance HealthAugust 21, 2022
It was one of the most exciting 1199SEIU Hudson Valley/Capital Region actions of 2022. Hundreds of members who are employed by Nuvance Health held two car caravans — one in Dutchess County and the other in Putnam County and Western Connecticut. The goal, which was achieved with flying colors, was to inform Hudson Valley residents (who count on Connecticut-based Nuvance for their health care), hospital board members and community leaders about what’s really happening.

"We are pulling back the opaque curtain and letting some light in.”
“My co-workers and I question Nuvance's priorities. We have been trying to come to an agreement that would clearly help to retain and recruit staff— after all—how do you run a hospital system without staff? For two years they have stalled at the bargaining sessions and more recently, when we are at the height of crisis, they cancel last minute. It’s getting to the point where the health of the community is at risk. I am gravely concerned and I know I am not alone in this worry"
“We treat our patients with 1st class service, but we receive 2nd class healthcare benefits and wages from Nuvance!"
