Leading the fight for safe staffing levels

We are pleased to report that our lobbying efforts regarding safe staffing levels have been effective. In the next legislative session, Gov. Andrew Cuomo will introduce legislation setting safe staffing levels for nurses in hospitals and nursing homes.

Our Federation of Nurses/UFT contracts have negotiated staffing guidelines enforceable though the grievance procedure, and our members who miss meals and breaks have the contractual right to grieve any missed hours.

Hospitals represented by other groups who have not achieved contractual remedies will benefit from the governor's efforts. Gov. Cuomo's support emphasizes the significance of our need for safe staffing levels.

The Federation of Nurses/UFT is proud to lead the fight for safe staffing!
