Coronavirus (COVID-19)

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. Learn more here about how workers can protect themselves and how you can stand with workers on the frontlines of this crisis.


We are in desperate need of resources to stop the spread of COVID-19 and the toll it continues to take. Healthcare workers can't do it alone. The federal government must do its part. Without providing access to lifesaving personal protective equipment (PPE) and crisis pay to cover essential bills, childcare, and transportation to work, healthcare workers are being forced to choose between caring for their patients and caring for their families.

1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East

We are all feeling tremendous sorrow following the mass shooting at our Jefferson Avenue Tops Supermarket on Saturday. We mourn for the victims lost in this act of racist violence and our hearts go out to our UFCW union family working in the store the day of this horrific tragedy.

Our country has a long history of racism and violence. Mass killings motivated by white supremacy have persisted from the time of slavery, through the decades of segregation and now well into the twenty-first century. It is more than a series of random horrific events. It is an unfolding American tragedy. It must stop! Let us, as healthcare workers and 1199 members, come together, rise up and demand justice and an end to the hate and violence. It is our obligation and responsibility, every one of us, to do all we can to end this carnage.

Immediately, we can reach our hands out to those impacted by this senseless violence and offer assistance and support.

The Tops store in Buffalo is now a crime scene and is temporarily closed. It served many of our members who live and work in that area. There is not another grocery store for miles. The situation leaves folks unable to access fresh produce, food and other necessities.

This is an area where we can help. Below, is a list of local community organizations focused on providing for the basic needs of residents in the immediate neighborhood near Tops. Please make a contribution. Let’s do what we can to help our sisters and brothers who are hurting right now.
