A strong majority of Butler Hospital workers from three units collectively voted to join District 1199 SEIU New England this week. Patient Assessment Service (PAS) Intake Coordinators, Clinical Access Specialists, and Unit Secretaries voted 59-6 in the union election.
These groups of workers joined nearly 400 existing members at Butler including RN’s, LPN’s, Mental Health Workers, Clinical Information Specialists and Housekeepers who have been in 1199 SEIU for several years.
The new union members are now united to provide a strong voice for patients, families, and staff to make quality care at the hospital even better.
Butler Hospital is part of the Care New England health care system.
