USW: A Union for Healthcare Workers

Across Kentucky, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, we represent more than 3,000 healthcare workers.

Our members work in hospitals and nursing homes, and work in almost every type of position from RN's to LPN's, from dietary to nurses aids, from housekeeping to laundry.

Through their union contracts, our members have been able to achieve policies to better protect their health and safety at work, better wages and benefits, input on staff-to-patient ratios, and more.

Watch the video below to hear more about union-negotiated benefits from a District 8 healthcare worker.
