Healthcare workers at Sinai Grace Hospital in Detroit became some of the newest members of the SEIU family, voting overwhelmingly in favor of joining SEIU Healthcare Michigan (HCMI). These 500 patient care technicians, sitters, respiratory therapists and radiology technicians will join the thousands of other SEIU Healthcare Michigan members at Detroit hospitals who are fighting for higher wages, secure benefits and a stronger voice for their patients and the Detroit community.
“Being able to unite together in SEIU Healthcare Michigan means we have more power to stand up for quality care for our patients and good union jobs to support our own families,” said Tina Milton, a patient safety attendant at Sinai Grace Hospital.
Milton and her coworkers will be joining the 1.1 million healthcare workers already flexing their power in numbers by belonging to SEIU. They are just the latest example of American workers standing up to a political and economic system that’s been rigged against them for far too long.
