More than 800 Workers at Caritas St. Elizabeth's Medical Center Make History with Vote to join 1199SEIU
Date:4/9/2009

Council, which established a free and fair union election code of conduct. Under the accord, workers would be free to make their own decisions on whether to join together as a union under fair secret ballot voting conditions. Caritas Christi and the members of 1199SEIU - including workers at Caritas Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton, who had previously organized with 1199SEIU - along with the Area Trades Council, have pledged to work together on efforts around employee training and education, as well as employee and patient satisfaction, to usher in the next level of health care quality.

"We warmly welcome St. Elizabeth's workers into our union," said 1199SEIU President George Gresham. "This is a time of great challenges and unprecedented opportunities. Caritas Christi is a thoughtful and innovative health system that understands how giving workers a free choice about uniting together not only allows them to provide the very best care to their patients, but also helps to preserve the long-term sustainability of their hospital. Now that St. Elizabeth's workers have a union voice, we can all work together to defend healthcare funding, expand access, and make life better for the caregivers at St Elizabeth's and their families."

"By an overwhelming margin, St. Elizabeth's workers have come together to unite with the common goal of making their hospital the best it can be for patients, for the community and for each other as caregivers," said 1199SEIU Executive Vice President Mike Fadel. "During this time of budget cuts and economic uncertainty, workers at St. Elizabeth's will stand together with their fellow healthcare workers across Massachusetts. The next step is that workers at St. Elizabeth's will elect a bargaining committee and begin the process of forming their own bargaining proposals."

Organizing efforts are ongoing at hospitals throughout Massachusetts. Area hospital CEOs have been asked to allow work
