Caritas Christi, 1199SEIU, Area Trades Council to Announce Historic New Accord to Improve Health Care for Community, Patients, Health Workers
Date:1/27/2009

usetts Senator Edward M. Kennedy released a statement lauding Caritas and the labor groups for coming together for the benefit of patients, health workers, and the community.

"Today's groundbreaking agreement is good for health care, good for workers and good for hospitals," said the statement from Senator Kennedy. "This partnership establishes a firm foundation for future progress that will benefit both the hardworking people in our health care industry and the people of Massachusetts. I congratulate Caritas Christi, 1199 SEIU and the Area Trades Council for their hard work in reaching this agreement."

A separate joint statement from Senators Kennedy and Kerry, along with members of the Massachusetts Congressional delegation, will be presented at the press conference.

The breakthrough was also met with acclaim from City of Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, who is scheduled to attend this morning's press conference:

"Caregivers perform one of the most critical roles in helping the sick, but their services are some of the most undervalued. This accord supports those who dedicate their time and energy to care for countless patients every day," said Mayor Menino. "Through this commitment between Caritas Christi and 1199SEIU, everyone involved in delivering quality health care to the people of Boston will benefit. I congratulate these organizations on forming a partnership to strengthen both patient care and employee representation."

Senate President Therese Murray (D-Plymouth) praised the announcement, releasing the following statement:

"A highly trained and skilled workforce is essential to maintaining quality healthcare," Senate President Murray said. "This agreement represents that commitment to excellence, and I congratulate everyone involved in making sure we have the best workers and health care services available."
