Besides Holy Family and Merrimack Valley, the hospitals include St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Brighton, Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, Carney Hospital in Dorchester, Quincy Medical Center, Norwood Hospital and Morton Hospital in Taunton.
The terms of the contract do not apply to Steward employees at Nashoba Valley Medical Center in Ayer, St. Anne’s Hospital in Fall River, or New England Sinai Hospital in Stoughton. Workers at those three Steward-owned facilities are not part of 1199SEIU.
Registered nurses, who are represented by the Massachusetts Nursing Association and are not covered by this contract, have rallied against Steward several times over the last two years protesting staffing levels.
