Einstein stands with NYSNA and SEIU1199
As workers, students, trainees, and researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore, we desire to study and work at an institution that treats its members in a fair and just manner. In recent months Montefiore has expected its employees to maintain their prior level of productivity during an active pandemic that threatens both their safety and that of their families. These increased expectations have not corresponded with an acceptable increase in salary or benefits. Therefore, we wish to express our support for and solidarity with the New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) nurses who recently went on strike for safe working conditions on the front lines of the pandemic. Additionally, we wish to express our solidarity with SEIU1199 workers who are negotiating for a fair contract with Montefiore. We recognize the vital role played by members of SEIU and NYSNA, affirm their right to collective bargaining, and call on Montefiore to negotiate in good faith.
