Hey there, I was wandering if anyone had any opinions or advice in regards to working as an RN for a hospital supported by 1199 versus NYSNA. I know that 1199 has great medical benefits with no co-pays. But I was wandering is NYSNA is just as good in regards to medical benefits or some nurses feel it is better than 1199?

thanks for this. My wife and I are moving to NYC in about six months and she wants copies of any union contracts I can find for her. The SEIU 1199 posts theirs but NYSNA does not seem to. Do you know anywhere that their contracts are? Calls to their office have not gotten any response.
That's disheartening that NYSNA is not more helpful...I feel it's in the RNs best interests to have and share as much info as possible (which is one reason allnurses.com is such an invaluable resoure for us)---could this be because NYSNA feels their contracts are not as good as 1199's? I am attempting to post a PDF of my contract at NY Methodist hospital in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY--if this doesn't work, perhaps a nurse-techie can tell me what I'm doing wrong or I can try sending it as an e-mail attachment if you PM me your e-mail address...
