I just got off the phone with a frustrated Leah Gonzalez, press secretary of the 1199SEIU Healthcare workers union in NYC. She said the healthcare workers union job placement program is working around the clock to find workers new jobs, but with most hospitals cutting back, it doesn’t look good. She said that a number of services will be cut (obviously),though had no specifics. Finally she said that the healthcare union will continue to fight the city/state on budget cuts with advertisements, and lobbying.
