Chas Walker

  • SEIU 1199 New England
  • Healthcare

2015 RI Hospital Organizer of the Year! I lead a successful organizing campaigns of more than 100 hospital workers in 4 separate residual units at Butler Hospital who joined 1199NE by a total vote of 85-18, over significant opposition from management.

Reached first ever contract for RI Child Care providers - after a 10 year campaign!! Helped save Bannister House nursing home through massive member mobilization.

Will work to train and develop more leaders and organizers to play a greater role in our union.
