Workers’ World Today is a free publication that empowers all workers, regardless of social or political affiliations. Distributed throughout New York City, our paper has a mission to educate workers and provide them with relevant information pertinent to the workforce such as workers’ compensation, discrimination on the job, workers’ rights, and more.
This week, 1199SEIU member Scheena Iyande Tannis proudly represented New York, our healthcare heroes, and her union as she announced New York State’s roll call for Joe Biden during the Democratic National Convention.
A native of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Tannis is an RN at Brooklyn’s Brookdale Hospital – one of New York City’s hardest-hit facilities during the local COVID-19 surge. Before calling out the state’s 277 votes for Joe Biden, she spoke of the importance of paid sick leave and ample personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers.
“Joe Biden’s plan will help us take better care of your loved ones, as well as our own,” stated Tannis. Click here for the video!
