Healthcare workers are our most valuable resource in addressing COVID-19, and keeping healthcare workers safe must be our top priority. 1199SEIU, the nation’s largest healthcare workers’ union, has been working tirelessly with our members and partners to make sure our healthcare workers have what they need to do their job well and under the best conditions possible.
