CWA Healthcare Workers

CWA District 1 represents more than 15,000 healthcare workers throughout New York and New Jersey who make up the backbone of their facilities, from nurses to techs to housekeeping to dietary. Our healthcare members are part of 150,000 workers represented by CWA District 1 in New York, New Jersey, and New England, who stand together to fight for better wages and working conditions, and to lift up working families.

Together, we have helped pass some of the strongest legislation in the country protecting healthcare workers and improving staffing; we've fought for and won strong contracts that include standard-raising staffing ratios; we've led the way on efforts to make our workplaces safer, including during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and preparing for future epidemics.

When we fight together, we win for healthcare workers.
