The Labor Management Project works with several community-based organizations that have members represented by 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East. The primary focus of our work has been to improve labor-management relationships through skill-building and development.
Community-based organizations are taking on a much greater role in New York’s healthcare delivery system, as a result of healthcare reform and the emergence of the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program. With community health and population health at the core of this improvement model, community health providers are being engaged to build stronger collaborations between acute care, long-term care, ambulatory care, home care and other healthcare settings. The Labor Management Project will be engaged in creating space for collaboration, dialogue and learning between these healthcare partners as this model develops.
