    District 1199C is an affiliate of the National Union of Hospital and Health Care Employees, AFSCME, AFL-CIO. The roots of the National Union go back to June 7, 1932 when a group of pharmacists founded the Pharmacists Union of Greater New York.

    Our own history began in December 1969, when a conference was held to form the 1199 National Organizing Committee for the express purpose of organizing health care workers throughout the country. Hoping to organize, committee representatives went to various cities across the country including Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Boston and Philadelphia. At that time hospital workers were not allowed to join a union! The National Organizing Committee successfully lobbied Harrisburg for the passage of Act 195 which gave hospital workers in Pennsylvania the right to organize and compelled employers to bargain in good faith. [ read more ]

    CHOP and HUP are in the building today to pay their thanks to an incredible person and organizer, Linda Fields. District 1199C would like to thank her for her dedication and contributions that far exceeded those required of her job. Her fearless leadership is valued and will be sorely missed, however, she intends to run for State Senate in the 24th Senatorial District. The state will be lucky to have such a dedicated civil servant. Union Members please go support Linda in her endeavors by volunteering and contributing.
