"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 and the community," 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."

Workers at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center have pledged to help health care workers at facilities across Boston as well as other Caritas Christi facilities -- where union election campaigns are expected to launch in the near future.
