SEIU Healthcare 1199NE (New England Health Care Employees Union)
Taking action together has always been how health care workers have won improvements — whether we’re in contract negotiations for a raise, at work defending someone being treated unfairly, or lobbying at the State Capitol for safe staffing levels. Often called “my favorite union” by Martin Luther King Jr., District 1199 is a bold, democratic labor organization with a long activist tradition. Since the New England branch of 1199 was established in 1968, they’ve united more than 20,000 workers to win a voice at work to demand improvements for people in nursing homes, hospitals, state and community-based health care services. They are a strong voice for health care workers and the people we care for every day.
