Our Union represents some 70,000 nursing home employees throughout New York State, Maryland and Massachusetts. Many of these are organized in our Upstate, Maryland/DC, Massachusetts and Capital Region Divisions.
Our Nursing Home Division represents some 40,000 workers in 226 nursing homes on Long Island, New York City, Westchester and the lower Hudson Valley. Through collective bargaining, their wages, healthcare benefits, pensions and other benefits, and working conditions are perhaps the best of any nursing home workers in the United States. Their standards are those that we seek to achieve throughout the states and regions where 1199SEIU is present.
In the past year, working together with patients and their families, as well as some nursing home administrators, our Nursing Home Division is working toward patient-based care, making the nursing homes a more welcome, friendly “livable” space for the patients and the staff.
