Workers Demand NYU “Do Better” at Bargaining!August 24, 2018
On August 24, 2018, over 7,500 workers with NYU Langone began bargaining their first contract in decades without the support of their League brothers and sisters. NYU claimed they left the League of Voluntary hospitals to do better by employees and patients, and now our members are holding them to it. #UniteFightWin #Made4WhoseNY
In 2016, NYU Langone abruptly withdrew from city-wide bargaining with the League of Voluntary hospitals, a ground-breaking approach to bargaining that has ensured good jobs and quality care for New York City for decades. NYU claimed they left the League in order to do better by workers and patients, but workers fear NYU made this move in order to isolate them from their fellow brothers and sisters and go after the benefits their families depend on.
