This region is part of Health Systems 5A. It includes the northern suburbs of New York City on both sides of the Hudson River—Westchester and Rockland counties—as well as the rural and semi-rural Putnam, Dutchess, Columbia, Orange, Ulster, Sullivan and Greene Counties up the Hudson to the capital city of Albany, and as far north as the southern Adirondacks and as far west as Gloversville in the eastern Mohawk Valley.
Included are the 11,500 workers at 22 hospitals, 17 nursing homes and a handful of clinics and community-based organizations.
Our Union’s New Organizing teams are hard at work in this region, building the Union among nursing home and hospital workers who want to improve their working conditions, wages and benefits.
In addition to coordinating Union activities through the Capital Region and Hudson Valley, our Albany office, located only a few blocks from the New York State Capitol, also serves as a legislative/lobbying headquarters for 1199SEIU.
