We're the heroes in this fight. Now it's time to do what's right!

Montefiore Hospital, Patient Educator

Joanna Ocasio-Janvier

Our 1199 Funds were created for a good reason – to help make our
healthcare institutions what they are – some of the best in the nation.
Offering good economic benefits means a stable workforce. Qualified staff
want to come to and stay at their jobs. I am a graduate of the Training Fund. I
know that my continuing education has helped me be the best I can be. The
thought of diminishing any of these benefits is ridiculous. If you are going to
call us heroes, then treat us like heroes and give us the contract we deserve,
with all of our Funds in place!
