The UFT represents some 2,800 registered nurses of the New York City Visiting Nurse Service and several private New York City hospitals and healthcare institutions. Like all workers, they too need improvements to their working conditions, benefits and support. Just like in the school system, nurses who see something, should be comfortable and protected when they say something.
UFT Solidarity does not forget that to improve the union, we have to work on all the members the UFT represents. We have been speaking to these nurses and the overwhelming response has been “We feel forgotten and unsupported by the UFT.”
