Join the Solidarity Caravan!

Support District 1199 Nursing Home workers, on strike since April 15.

Now in the fourth month of their strike, almost 400 nursing, dietary and housekeeping workers are standing strong against Spectrum Healthcare, a local company that is trying to bust their union. The workers demand a fair contract (like 40 other homes have agreed to), safe workplaces and quality care for residents. You can help them win their fight. Join the Caravan on July 24 and sign up for other activities!

Saturday, July 24 from 9 am to 1 pm
