Protech

The healthcare industry faces many new challenges as it restructures to move increasingly to ambulatory care from acute care. Hospitals and nursing homes are looking to cut costs and medical professionals are expected to do more with less. At the same time, technological advances require an increasingly educated workforce. In this environment, it is more important than ever for professionals to have a voice both at work and in the halls of government, so we can advocate for our patients, assert our vital roles in the healthcare delivery team, build respect for our individual professions, and ensure we are respected and properly compensated.

That is why thousands of professionals are joining 1199SEIU, the strongest, fastest-growing, and most effective healthcare union in the nation. With 1199, the specific concerns of every individual profession are heard and addressed. 1199 was originally founded by pharmacists over 80 years ago and now represents tens of thousands of professional members in every field throughout Florida, Washington, DC, Maryland, New Jersey, Massachusetts and New York.
