    Another Union Win!  

    Patient Financial Services (PFS) employees work and park in downtown Albuquerque. The parking structure they used, owned by the City of Albuquerque, and rented to the Hospital by Molina, was unsafe!    

    After months of getting the run-around from the Hospital, District 1199NM representatives met with the City of Albuquerque to discuss possible solutions to the parking issues. We then met with UNMH management to discuss implementation of the changes to Downtown parking for PFS employees. The new parking arrangements will be implemented soon and should resolve the concerns workers raised about safety.  

    The successful outcome was the result of a collective effort of those affected and involved. Here’s to the power of unity 

    Do you and your coworkers have workplace safety concerns? Your contract gives you the power to organize and make improvements.

    UNMH Asunto: Avance Noticiero 4/8/21

    ¡Otra victoria del Sindicato!  

    Los empleados de nuestro sindicato, Servicios Financieros del Paciente (PFS, siglas en Ingles) trabajan y estacionan sus autos en el centro de Albuquerque. ¡La estructura de estacionamiento que usan, propiedad de la ciudad de Albuquerque y alquilada al Hospital por Molina, no era segura! 

    Después de meses de recibir información del Hospital evadiendo nuestras preocupaciones, los representantes del Distrito 1199NM se reunieron con representantes de la Ciudad de Albuquerque para discutir posibles soluciones a los problemas de estacionamiento. Luego nos reunimos con la gerencia de UNMH para discutir la implementación de los cambios en el estacionamiento del Centro para los empleados de PFS. Los nuevos arreglos de estacionamiento se implementarán pronto y deberán resolver las preocupaciones que los trabajadores plantearon sobre la seguridad.

    El resultado exitoso fue el resultado de un esfuerzo colectivo de los afectados e involucrados. ¡Viva el poder de la unidad ! 

    ¿Tiene usted y sus compañeros de trabajo problemas de seguridad en el lugar de trabajo? Su contrato le da el poder de organizar y realizar mejoras.

    A benefit of seniority: There are two types of seniority- hospital and department. Seniority is defined as the length of time an employee has been continuously employed. Do you know, the longer you are employed by the hospital determines how much vacation time you earn? The longer you are there, the more you earn. For your first year you earn 10 days of annual leave, prorated by your FTE.
