Local 1199 Drug and Hospital Employees Union
In this documentary film, hospital workers in New York City tell of their struggle to organize and improve wages that were less than welfare checks. They express what their union means to them in terms of dignity, self-respect, and hope as they talk about their work and how they were treated before the union was formed.
