CONTRACTS

With 275,000 members in one thousand institutions in three states and the District of Columbia, 1199SEIU has hundreds of contracts with employers in every sector of the healthcare industry from hospitals to clinics, pharmacies to home-care agencies and nursing homes, plus several human service agencies.

Here are the summaries of some of our largest contracts. These are only summaries, not the contracts themselves.
1199SEIU Members, please note: There are many differences, even small ones, among Collective Bargaining Agreements. Please consult your CBA, or your Delegate for the precise language.

The League Contract
The traditional core of 1199 is based in the hospital industry of New York City and Long Island where dozens of institutions form the League of Voluntary Hospitals and Homes for collective bargaining with our Union. The 1199SEIU/League contract is a master contract that covers tens of thousands of hospital workers. It is the “model contract” whose conditions—wages, benefits, and worker protections—we seek to match throughout our Union. Many hospitals and medical centers outside of the League have “me-too” contracts that are modeled on the League’s.

Because more than a dozen former SEIU healthcare Locals have merged with 1199 since 1998, they brought their own history, conditions and contracts. The strategic goal of 1199SEIU is to achieve one high standard for all healthcare workers.

2014-2018 LEAGUE MOA

1199/LEAGUE COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT JUNE 2009 - APRIL 2015

THE GREATER NEW YORK CONTRACT

This is the master contract for tens of thousands of nursing home workers in Long Island, New York City and its northern suburbs. As with the League contract for hospital workers, the Greater New York contract is the model for wages and benefits that we have achieved within the nursing-home industry.

HOME CARE CONTRACTS

Homecare workers fall into two categories—home attendants and home health aides. Home health aide contracts are negotiated with licensed homecare agencies, which in turn are subcontracted by Certified Home Health Agencies.

There are separate contracts with each licensed agency for the home health aides.

What is included here is the master contract for the home attendants and housekeepers, covering some 40,000 workers in New York City. Nearly all home attendant contracts are identical, but members should consult their own CBA.

The home attendant contract does not represent any contract for home health aides.
