1199 UHE New Organizing Department
We are a Union of healthcare workers. We work in the homecare, hospital and nursing home industries, as well as pharmacies, freestanding clinics and other healthcare settings. We care for the sick, the infirm, the elderly. Ours is noble work.
With nearly 400,000 members throughout New York State, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Florida, Maryland and the District of Columbia, we are the largest local union in the world.
We are dedicated to our patients, our members and our families. The mission of our Union is to improve and expand quality patient care, to protect and improve the lives of our members and our families, and to work in solidarity with working people in our communities and around the world.
We are affiliated with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) which is, with 2.1 million members, the largest labor Union in North America.
