Statement by George Gresham, President of 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, on ending of DACA
“President Donald Trump has made several destructive decisions during his nearly eight months in office. Few, however, are as cruel and damaging as the destruction of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). This program has provided renewable, two-year work permits to undocumented immigrants who have lived in this country since they were children and often only know the United States as home. They’re called Dreamers, but President Trump has created a nightmare for these nearly 800,000 people, most of whom have made positive contributions to the U.S.

Today’s nursing homes are far different than those of the past. Due to a rapidly changing health care delivery system and longer life spans, Marylanders from all walks of life rely on these facilities.
1199ers in Massachusetts hosted hundreds of community neighbors at our Annual Health Fair on August 19 at Franklin Park in Boston. It was a fun-filled day with free food, games, dancing and more to honor the hard work we do! Thanks to everyone in Massachusetts who helped us celebrate what it means to come together as a community.

Overcoming Fierce Management Resistance Members at Fresenius Dialysis Centers Negotiate Better Wages and Benefits in a Newly-ratified 4-year Contract

PARTISANSHIP SUCCUMBED TO THE COMMON GOOD People power doesn’t sleep. The nation saw proof on July 28 at about 1:30 a.m. in the U.S. Senate, when three votes from Republican senators ended the latest drive to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
I’m a retired 1199 member and a person with a disability who is very relieved that the disastrous attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are on hold, but we shouldn’t get comfortable. When something is unfair and unjust what do 1199ers do? We fight back! This American Healthcare Reform Act (AHCA) is still a dangerous reality and mostly for our most fragile populations. The AHCA does nothing but harm many, and any benefit will be to the wealthy with a huge tax break.
