Nurses at JFK have a long history of being united in our Union. We were the first 121RN hospital! Having our Union contract means we have a voice in advocating for safe, quality patient care in an industry that sometimes puts profits before patients.
By standing United in our Union, we won a wage scale that recognizes an RN's total years of service. We also won a clinical ladder to promote critical training and education when most hospitals were getting rid of it. And we've fought to preserve healthcare benefits—healthcare workers and their families must have good healthcare!
