    Why Join the Union?

    Becoming a member of District 1199NM is like having a safety net. Your Union contract provides:

    A Voice:  

    Becoming a member allows you to voice your opinion and become active in negotiating your contract without fear of retaliation. In a union hospital you can express your professional opinion and voice your concerns also without fear.

    Job Security and Protection:

    Your union contract is a legally binding document that sets forth your wages, hours and working conditions. It protects you from unjust disciplinary actions including terminations.

    Through the grievance process, employees can safely address contract violations with guidance and assistance from a union officer, delegate, or representative from the union office.

    District 1199NM is always actively organizing and negotiating for improved working conditions.

    Financial Security:

    Your contract ensures our financial security by protecting benefits like overtime pay and differentials. Your union fights for better pay and better benefits as well as addressing safety concerns. 

    Strength in Numbers:

    Each new member helps strengthen YOUR union. This means strength, improved representation and etter contract language. A strong membership sends the message that employees are aware of their rights and are sticking together to improve rights and working conditions.    

    The greatest benefit:

    The greatest benefit of joining the union is the strength that comes from the solidarity of your co-workers and workers across the country. You are not alone when you raise health and safety concerns. You are not alone in the fight for fair wages and treatment or when you file grievances. You are also not alone in the national issues that affect you. your community, and your family.


    Your contract, your salary, and your benefits are some of the best in comparison to others in New Mexico and in the industry. Hospitals represented by District 1199NM lead the way determining wages and benefits. But only with a strong membership can we continually fight to successfully stave off the erosion of benefits like retirement and health care that has hit so many workers.
