Why Join?

  • Do you want to build a better and more secure economic future for you and your family?
  • Do you want a say in the decisions your employer makes that affect you and your loved ones?
  • Have you ever been unfairly disciplined by your supervisor or forced to accept a demotion, suspension or other punishment you didn’t deserve?

If you answered yes to any of these questions it’s time to consider forming a union with CHCA District 1199. With more than 3000 members across Connecticut, CHCA is a union for ALL health care workers.

We fight for and secure wage icreases, benefits and working conditions for our members. Since there are limits to what any individual group can attain through bargaining, we practice solidarity with other unions in coalitions to improve the working conditions and lives of both those we represent and those we don't. We also advocate for our members and the patients they serve at the State Legislature too, fighting to protect our members and holding both business owners and politicians accountable for their actions. We stand ready to do the same for you and your colleagues.

Get in touch with us to have a preliminary conversation and to learn more. All conversations are strictly confidential and you will not be pressured to move forward until you are ready.
