New! NYC Private Hospital Picketing

It's impossible to capture in a single post the extraordinary impact of what New York nurses were able to pull off yesterday.

We picketed thirteen hospital sites from Bronx to Brooklyn, representing 13,000 registered nurses.

Our message was clear: management needs to bargain in good faith to provide our community with the care our patients deserve.

Special thanks to our labor, community, and elected leaders who came out in solidarity, including: New York State AFL-CIONew York City Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO several locals of CWA District 1Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU)Hotel Trades CouncilDistrict Council 1707, AFSCME1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers EastNew York TeamstersNew York Professional Nurses UnionAmalgamated Transit Union (ATU)OPEIU - Office and Professional Employees International UnionGABRIELA USANorthwest Bronx Community & Clergy CoalitionKarines ReyesJumaane D.
