More Than 50 Professional Workers at Zucker Hillside Hospital Vote to Join 1199SEIU

November 2, 2018

The Recovery Counselors, Activity Specialists and Care Managers voted almost unanimously, by 44 to 3, to join 1199 on October 30th.

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 430,000 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 Zucker Hillside voted to join our union to enable them to negotiate a legally-binding contract with benefits such as 1199’s child care, job security, affordable quality healthcare and continuing education.
