BE FAIR TO THOSE WHO CARE! Join 1199SEIU Healthcare Workers, not yet-union hospital workers, and community activists as we say: 3:30-5:30 Longwood Medical Area. Too many hospital workers can't afford healthcare for themselves or their children and many struggle to pay their rent on low wages that don't reward their years of labor. Many caregivers have been quietly working together to form a union with 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, with a vision of making our hospitals the best they can be for our patients and workplaces where caregivers are treated with Dignity, Rights and Respect.
