Seiu 1199

Advocates for nursing home residents and the union 1199 SEIU held a press conference Friday afternoon to celebrate the rules taking effect.
Union leaders sent a letter to Gov. Hochul and legislative leaders last week stating that housing insecurity is a major cause of stress for their members. The bill would limit landlords’ abilities to raise rent and evict tenants.
Grassroots labor advocates claim that if 1199SEIU home care workers got all the money they were owed, it would total $5 billion to $6 billion, putting staffing agencies out of business. The agencies say they'd need state help to pay the back wages.
Many unions had shifted their support from Christine Quinn to Bill de Blasio.
